And the fun begins with the new project - customized sweater

Recently I had been searching for a hoodie pattern that had a classic look to it. Since I couldn't find one, I chose to go with Lion Brand Lion Cotton knit hooded sweater in the adult version. I am not using cotton because I did not want the hassle of worrying about shrinkage. That was my first adjustment. I did some other little things after taking measurements so it was more custom, and I changed the ribbing. I cannot stress enough whether it is knit or crochet, take measurements when you…
