Atherton - A Top Down No Sew Hoodie with Cable Trim for Kids

This is a design that is very close to my heart. One of my own personal favorites developed over years of refining the pattern to fit well, look good and be a joy to knit. I have built in a comfortable amount of ease so the hoodie will fit like your childs favorite sweatshirt.

Generic gauge: works with most Worsted weight (4 Medium) yarns

It is a classic hoodie design with an all new construction that makes it easy to fit and simply a pleasure to knit.

You can make it is sizes from toddler - 2T to size 16 (an small adult) with optional “Afterthought Wallaby Pouch” or any of the many variations suggested for a totally different look each time.

Use it as a canvas on which to show off your own creativity.
This is a “Meditative” knit with easy repetitive shaping that flows without interruptions. Before you know it you’re finished and the only sewing to do is the top of the hood and minimal ends to weave in.

You are unlikely to find an error now that this pattern has been to “The TECHsorcist” - Technical Editing by Eleanor Dixon.
but of course, neither of us is perfect so please let me know if you find anything :-)

Skills Required:
Working in the round on circular needles and double pointed needles; knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing; simple cable pattern
