TADA, a hoodie
This sweater was done entirely in the round...no side seams, no sewn shoulder seams (three needle cast-off) and the sleeves were picked up at the armholes and worked down. Only the hood needed a few stitches at the front neck where the edging crosses over itself.
There is some room in the body...I think by next fall I will need to add some length to the sleeves...which doing these from the shoulder down will make SO EASY to do. Just frog the ribbing, and go.
I like this technique.
All patterns should be written this way....I will make it my goal in life to convert as many patterns to in-the-round as possible.
