This sweater is a grown up version of the classic hoodie. It will be a wardrobe staple due to its cozy boxy shape and hard wearing cuffed hems but there is no worry of looking like a slob while wearing it! Both versions contain stylish features that elevate it beyone pure utilitarianism: Variation 1 features a unique squared neckline and a stylish shawl collar. It also includes an optional neckline facing that can be use to feature contrast fabrics as a finishing touch to the garment interior. Variation 2 includes a roomy lined hood that crosses over at the front to join to the squared neckline as well as the classic kangaroo pocket to protect hands from the elements.
Medium to heavy weight knit fabrics. A contrast knit or woven fabric can be used for the decorative neck facing as well as for the hood lining. Sef fabric or a ribbed knit can be used for the cuffs and hem band.
You will also need:
- Optional, 1/2" twill tape to finish the back neckline and stabilize the shoulder seams.
