The hoodie is worked flat after the shoulders are joined, and the Neck and Hood edging is picked up and worked in the round.
Cotton Supreme Waves is a self-striping yarn. To ensure your project looks as close to the sample as possible, when breaking and rejoining yarn, be sure to visually match the point at which you’re rejoining. This may require you to wind off some yarn. We promise the results are worth the effort!
