This streamlined hoodie is going to take you everywhere, from the local high school football game or bonfire at the lake, to a fall fiber festival or casual evening out with friends. Contrasting Latvian braids on the hem, sleeves and collar are stunning accents to this hooded sweater. Knit it in your favorite team colors or choose colors that are more subdued to fit your personal color palette. This is definitely your go-to knit for the next hootenanny.
