Introduction and a recent red FO

Hi! I'm Bear Knits and I love red!

I finished a red hoodie for my 4yo Little Man in April.

My boys

Cabo Hoodie
Pattern: Wendy Bernard of Knit and Tonic
Yarn: 4 skeins Lion Cotton-Ease in Cherry Red for size 6
Needles: Addi Circulars in US #7 and #8
(04/06/07 - 04/18/07)

Modifications: I made the neckline bigger by deepening the V. I lengthened the hood using one of his hoodies as a comparison.

Technique Learned: Grafting garter stitches.

The pocket was the first piece knitted up but as you can see a month later I haven't sewn it on yet.

That's a wonderful red sweater! I'll just bet that your son will get a lot of wear out of it, with or without the pocket.
