Hoodies for Girls and Women

(1102)
Difficulty: Easy

There are few sweaters as cozy and wonderful on a brisk fall day as a hoodie you knit yourself in your favorite yarn. Wear another sweater under it, or just a t-shirt, keep your hands warm without carrying gloves, put up the hood if your ears get cold. The hoodie is quite possibly the perfect comfortable sweater.

NOTE: The Noni Forget-Me-Not and other Noni flower patterns are sold separately.

    Delivery Method:

    My little boy loves clothes that bend and move when he does. He eschews blue jeans because they restrict his movements. The garments in this pattern were designed with him (and all children who like soft clothes) in mind. The little girl on the cover loved wearing the outfit.
