We all know how we feel about our kids…and the rest of the world knows it to, but sometimes it’s nice to say it out loud.
This oversized hooded sweater has love written all over it, and knits up quickly in pure wool DK weight yarn.
This sweater is worked flat and seamed, however since the hood is picked up at the neckline it is easier to use a circular needle.
