The city of Boulder, Colorado is a magnet for those who love outdoor activities of all kinds. This hoodie will become your go-to sweater when you’ve just got to be out enjoying life.

This pullover is worked from the top down, beginning at the back shoulders. The back is worked to the armholes, then placed on hold while the front is picked up from the back shoulders and worked to the armholes. Then the back and front are joined and the body is worked to the bottom edge, incorporating the pocket as you go. The sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked to the cuffs, with short-row shaping to shape the sleeve caps.

The pouch pocket is easy to work - knit the top of the pocket with 2 strands of yarn, divide the doubled stitches to work the pocket facing and body separately until they’re done, then knit them together to close the bottom of the pocket. The hood doesn’t just look good — it’s large enough to be comfortable, and the ties ensure that it will stay in place no matter how hard the wind blows. You’ll be ready to get out there and have some fun!

If you are unfamiliar with working a set-in-sleeve sweater from the top-down, my 2-part tutorial gives you everything you’ll need to know to do it successfully.
