Santa Cruz Hoodie

Pattern Notes:
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.

That hoodie is so cute--the colors you used are great! And no, I don't believe using Malabrigo for a 4 year-old is necessary, LOL.
