Santa Cruz Hoodie from Knit 2 Together
Yarn: Peru Chunky Luxury
Needles: size 10 straights & circulars, size 11 straights
I made this hoodie for my next door neighbor's adopted son, who is from El Salvador and is 4 years old. I wanted to make it a little big so that he could grow into it. It was finished before Christmas, but I still haven't given it to him.
I bought the yarn on clearance at AC Moore because I wasn't going to use something really expensive for a 4 year old. It is made of merino, alpaca, and silk though, so it was still not cheap. For the most part, I followed the pattern, other than mistakes, like not using the smaller needles on the ends of the sleeves.
