A sporty little hoodie with beautiful shaping lines in the back for hourglass shaping.
Start with several small blocks and explore a variety of interesting stitch patterns. Whipstitch the blocks together for trim work reminiscent of patchwork. The body of the hoodie is worked in stockinette stitch and the textured stitches are revisited as accents along the edge of the hood and sleeves.
