This is a well-nigh perfect use of Lopi-- a very modern piece in a yarn with tremendous history. Kids these ages love hoodies, and it would be hard to argue that there's a better, more eco-friendly yarn in which to knit them. Better yet for the timid-- no steeking. The body is worked back and forth in one piece, then the sleeves (which you already knitted in the round) are joined in, and the yoke is finished with raglan shaping. Separate instructions are given for each size: thank you, Jonsdottir. Wrapped short rows help to shape the back. The Lite-Lopi is used for the hood and pockets. The only 'sewing' is closing the underarms, attaching the pockets, and sewing the hood rib edge to the neckband-- doesn't count, since you don't really have any seams within the garment. Awesome.
This design is from Lopi Book 27.
