The big sister to Hide and Seek - Ready or Not is designed to be cozy and ready for everyday adventures. With a fading cable detail and hidden pockets, this sweater is sure to be a well loved staple.

  • This lightweight sweater is worked seamlessly from the bottom up.
  • The body is worked in the round to the underarms, after which the front and back are separated and worked back and forth.
  • Short rows are used to shape the shoulders. The shoulders are joined using a 3 needle bind off. Stitches are then picked up for the sleeves, which are worked in the round down to the cuffs.
  • The neckline and cuffs are finished with ribbing.
