Pattern Notes

Harbor Hoodie is worked from the bottom up in one piece to the underarms. It is then divided into three pieces and worked separately to the shoulder. The sleeves are picked up from the armhole and worked in the round to the cuff. The hood is joined to live stitches held at the front and back neck.

Pattern includes a selvedge stitch at the beginning and end of each row for picking up stitches for the front band. The front bands are designed to overlap, so are not reflected in the finished chest measurement or schematic.
