This pattern came from a desire for a simple, top-down hoodie with clean lines for easy toddler wear. In order to keep the fabric sleek, ribbing, garter and seed stitch have given way to hemmed edges. To keep the look of a basic hoodie this pattern features an optional zipper closure and front pockets. The decorative ribbon draw-string is not particularly functional, it just gives the sweater a little extra personality. The fingering weight yarn makes it a nice, light, versatile sweater to throw on for extra warmth.

The pattern contains a Special Techniques section with photo tutorials for German Short Rows, Zipper Placement, Kitchener Stitch, and Crochet Chain Button Loops.
