DESCRIPTION

Maypop Hoodie is a loose and flowy hooded cardigan with a lace detail running down the spine. Wear it buttoned up or, for a casual robe-like look, with an i-cord belt tied around the waist.

This raglan-sleeved cardigan is worked top down starting with the hood that’s shaped with short rows. The lace panel at the center back flows seamlessly down the hood, into the body of the garment, and then all the way to the garter stitch band at the hem.

Zig zag lace and garter stitch details run down the front edges of the cardigan. For minimal finishing, button bands are worked simultaneously with the body of the cardigan. Waist and back shaping give this flowing summer hoodie a subtle hourglass curve.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for all lace patterns.
