Neighbor Hoodie

Meet my newest design, the Neighbor Hoodie (Ravelry Link), now available for purchase!
My goal was to create a unisex garment that would be easy to knit and could really pack a punch when knit with a luxury yarn. For this, I chose The Fibre Company's Road to China Light. This yarn is so delectable! It is an amazing blend of alpaca, silk, camel, and cashmere. This may be my new favorite yarn with which I'd like to knit all the things!
This hooded pullover is knit in the round, top down with a round yoke. The sleeves are knit in the round as well, with the hood being picked up at the collar and grafted along the top. A small hidden pocket is the final fun detail to make this sweater really special.
While this is categorized as a sweater, I could easily see the length increased for the 3 and 6 month sizes to create a tunic to go over sweet little onesies and leggings.
I was thoroughly please with how quickly I could work this pattern up. I hope you enjoy knitting it as well!
