Knitting Project: Toddler Hoodie

During our vacation I was able to finish the toddler hoodie I was knitting for the Yarn Hound in Dennis, Massachusetts.  I do not have the pattern in front of me but I am pretty sure this is the one here.

This hoodie is in a mostly-cotton yarn.  It knits up very well.

This sweater was really an easy knitting project.  The only thing that I had trouble with was the button band.  A specific number of stitches needed to be picked up. I did the exact number.  I followed the directions but still got the little funny bit at the bottom of the band.  Of course,  I still have not blocked the sweater.  Perhaps that will fix the appearance of the bottom of that button band.

This sweater is the 12-month size.  Because I did not find a 12-month old child to try it on, I cannot saw if the pattern is true to size.  Perhaps by the time I get the packaging together to send the sweater, I will have had time to block it and find a small model to check the sizing....
