Keep your young seafarer safe from the salty sea spray in this warm fisherman-style jacket. Deep pockets, a folded band with toggle loops, and deep hood add special details to this quick-to-knit jacket.

The hood is continued from the neck and shaped with increases at the back and decreases around a center panel on the crown.
