Elaine Adult Hoodie (Top Down)

An excellent idea, very well executed. The top-down hoodie (or optional collar if you prefer) is a great thing to make. With a high-contrast variegated yarn, you could look like some big-game animal that someone would like to hunt; in a more subtle variation, you are a woman of mist and mystery. The chunky gauge means it goes fast. Sleeves are raglan and edgings are all seed stitch, for discreet curl-taming. It's almost sewing-free, too; you are instructed to knit the sleeves flat and then sew up their seams afterwards; but if you worked them in the round, there would hardly be any sewing at all.
