Top Down Hoodie with Cable Trim
This great Hoodie is so much cuter than a sweatshirt and every bit as practical. The downy soft Merino wool yarn with either silk or angora rabbit is so comfy and warm.
Best of all it's so easy to knit. You start at the top of the hood and knit down as far as where the sleeves are divided from the body. At this point you are almost there. Just finish the body and each sleeve and you won't have any sewing or finishing left to do but the seam at the top of the hood.
