Little Spring Hoodie

_0026430
After designing the Well Water Hoodie, I knew it would also be perfect for children. So here comes the mini version of it!
You can make it for both girls and boys, there are different button band instructions for each. The hoodie is worked in one piece from top down, beginning with the hood. Wide textured panels on front and back really make the best out of a hand-dyed yarn. The subtle change in color creates a lovely contrast between smooth stockinette and more textured reverse stockinette. Elbow patches add a modern look.FINISHED MEASUREMENTS
