Yarn: Worsted Weight
Sizes: 2 through 12
This hoodie, now a wardrobe essential, is knit on #7 needles, and is a good design for the intermediate needle worker. The cables are easy and fun to work, but the placket requires attention to the detailing and a good command of knitting tension to keep the placket and buttonholes crisp and firm.
The directions include a collar as an alternative to the hood, making it a versatile pattern. Johnny is equally charming in a wide array of yarns from textured tweeds and fiber blends, to worsted-spun machine-washable wools. This is an endearing and cozy classic for any child, either boy or girl.
