Product description

Cozy up against the spine-tingling chill of ghost stories around the campfire in a handsome hoodie steeped in Scandinavian tradition. Magnus is knit in the round in Loft with steeks added at the front neck and sleeve openings so that the colorwork can be speedily completed. The hood is picked up from the neck and shaped with short rows, then finished with a Joinery bind-off and garter stitch worked circularly around the opening. Sleeves are sewn in once the steeks have been cut. Knitters up for a technical challenge will reward themselves with a true boyhood classic.
