Instantly Downloadable knitting pattern to make the original design "Atherton" the Top Down No Sew Hoodie with Cable Trim for Kids Knitting Pattern.

Thoroughly Technical Edited by Eleanor Dixon – The TECHsorcist Sizes
Child Sizes: 2T (4T, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16) To fit chest: 21 (23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 30, 31.5, 32.5)” [53.5 (58.5, 61, 63.5, 66, 68.5, 71, 76, 80, 82.5) cm] Shown in photo – size 6 with 4″ [10 cm] of ease. Finished Measurements
Working in the round on circular needles and double pointed needles; knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing; simple cable pattern.
A Classic, timeless design with simple raglan cables and a new twist on construction carefully designed for smooth, uninterrupted nonstop knitting. One piece top-down construction helps you get the perfect fit every time.
This is a “Meditative” knit with easy repetitive shaping that flows without interruptions. Before you know it you’re finished and the only sewing to do is the top of the hood and minimal ends to weave in.
My kids actually love to wear this. It’s comfortable and looks great too.
I find myself knitting this again and again with simple variations that make it new each time. Make it a cardigan, lose the hood, add pockets or a stitch pattern for texture. Lots of ideas for variations included as well as a tutorial on an “Afterthought Pouch Pocket” that you can add to any knit.
