This long-sleeved hooded sweater with pocket is knit primarily in stockinette. The designer Two of Wands and Lion Brand Yarn rate this a Level 2 Easy (beginner +) pattern. It does require picking up stitches and grafting. Sizes M/L, XL/2XL, XS/S. Also available as a kit.
When designing this piece I was inspired by summertime in between school years and the excitement that comes with a new start in fall. There is always a spark in the air at that time of year. It is just starting to get chilly in the evenings and school spirit is in full force. It’s a super nostalgic time for me and I wanted to create something that would capture that feeling.
