A casual hoodie worked in reverse stockinette stripes to show off the wonderful color variations in hand dyed yarn. Sport weight yarn makes this light enough to throw on as a jacket on breezy spring and summer nights at the beach or a perfect layering piece for the fall and winter.

Wonderful details include: a roomy hood, deep pockets and a one-piece mitered buttonband/bottom hem. This pattern is worked top down with a raglan yoke, the hood is picked up from around the neckline and worked from the bottom up. Modeled in size 34.5 with ~.5 in/ 1.25cm positive ease.
