A casual hoodie worked in reverse stockinette stripes shows off the wonderful color variations in hand dyed yarn – now in kids’ sizes! 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 or the fall and winter. Wonderful details include: a roomy hood, deep pockets and a one-piece button band/ hem.

Shown in size 24 months on a 16 month old, he wears a range of 18 months - 2T in RTW clothes.

This pattern is worked top down with a raglan shaping. Backwards loop cast on is used when adding additional stitches throughout the pattern. Inset pockets are worked at the same time as the body. The sleeves are worked in the round. Next, the hood is worked from the neckline up. Finally, the turned button band and bottom hem are worked in one piece in the round with mitered corners.
