Top Down Child's Hoodie

This class is in progress.

Over the years many of you have requested that I write a child’s hoodie that is knit from the top down and in the round. One of the few good things about the lockdown is I was able to take time and write that pattern that so many requested. 

This is an untraditional class because this pattern has not been published yet. In this 4 part class we will be breaking down each step of the top down hoodie making sure that the instructions are clear and easy to understand. Each week a section of the pattern will be emailed to you for the next days class. After the class LambShoppe and Just a Little Loopy will be hosting a pattern launch party where you will be the guest of honor and have an opportunity to show off your sweater. If you are interested in just purchasing the pattern the pattern will be available after 8/24/2022.

I really hope to see you in class.
