It’s beach season all year ‘round for your favorite little person when you make them this cute hooded sweater! Construction starts at the bottom with a picot hem, and the body is then worked without side seams - yay! Three sections of color brighten the body and knit-in top-down sleeves, with just a few rounds or rows of stranded colorwork to add that wavy motif. The stockinette hood flows upward from the body sts, and closes at the top. A contrasting picot band finishes the beachy look, which you can embellish with fashionable buttons and/or snaps. Directions are provided in instructional text, sizing schematics, and colorwork charts.
