Pattern Notes
The hoody is knitted in one piece to the armholes, the Fronts and Back are then worked separately to the shoulder. The sleeves are then picked up from the armholes and knitted down to the cuffs, thus minimising the finishing required. I used the long-tail cast-on method unless otherwise specified.

Purchase all three of my Cross-Country Knitting designs (Fufnip eBook, Bruton Hoody and Wee Bruton) for a special price of £13.00. No coupon code required, just add all three products to your cart.
