The last one was so fun, here we go again!
FWIW, the colors are truest in the finished pics.

This time, no side seams… 24+50+24
5 rows garter, 40 rows st st before sleeve shaping, binding off (4x2)2x.
18 rows until neck shaping.
30 rows st st until cast off.
Inc on 3rd, and every following 4th row…42 rows st st.

I think I will leave the hood off this one, and I may knit the sleeves from the shoulder down, picking up sts at the shoulder. :)

Sleeves - pick up 25+25, on rows 2-5, knit first and last st together with one of the bound off sts from the sleeve shaping. Continue to 18 rows/rounds, knitting in the round from row 6 on.
Start double decreases on round 19, and every 4th round after that, until 38 sts remain. On round 42, decrease evenly to 34 sts, and knit 5 rounds garter (3 ridges) before binding off.

Hood - pick up 15+29+15 sts, purl back. Knit in st st, Inc 2 at center of back every right side row, 17 times. At the same time, Inc also at the shoulder seam on rows 11 and 15. Work decreases at center back on right side rows 3 times. Knit to 42 rows; dec 4 sts on right side rows twice, then Kitchener top closed.

(FYI - This hood should be much longer before closing, like maybe another 20 rows…but I am leaving this one as is. Live and learn.)

I used some white yarn (Bernat softee baby) to edge the whole thing in crochet (slip st, ch 2 in every other stitch). I like this one, and the buttons are super cute! Photos soon!
