This sweater is perfect for those little things you have to run outside for, but you still want to look good while doing them! Maybe you have to walk the dog, or grab the mail, or run to the grocery store—no matter what it is, stay stylish in this hoodie. You can work the hoodie, if you like; you can work one or both side lace panels, or none. This sweater is easily customizable to your preferences.

Pick your favorite color and go! This sweater will look best in a solid or semi solid yarn, especially if you are working the simple lace inserts. These inserts are positioned on the sides to flatter the figure, and keep the long sections of stockinette interesting.

This sweater was designed to have 1-3” of positive ease, much like your favorite sweatshirt for those little errands!, so choose a size smaller than your usual size if you would like a slimmer fit.
