I live in Southern California, where you can go surfing in the morning and then drive one hour into the mountains to go snow boarding in the afternoon. I prefer the beach to the snow, but in the mornings, the beach winds can be chilly!
This casual hoodie cardigan is perfect for those cooler times of day when you want to cover up just a little to keep the chill off. Knit yourself some California Sunshine! :)
This summer hoodie is worked from the top-down, in seamless construction, with set-in sleeves are worked at the same time as the upper body.
The right side of the fabric features reverse stockinette stitch that causes the fronts to roll outward for a great casual look. The front edges are finished with an i-cord bind off.
Using fingering/sock weight yarn, knit at a slighter looser gauge gives this cardigan a really nice drape.
