This hood is so easy to knit...if you can knit a scarf you can make this! I used one of my favorite go-to yarns (Wool-Ease Thick & Quick). It knits up so fast and it's really easy to work with. It's also very warm which will be perfect once the cold weather comes.Yarn: Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Barley (1 skein)
Needles: Size US 13 straight needles
Sizes XS (age 1-2 years), S (3-4 years), M (4-5 years), L (6-7 years)
(Note- hood is knit flat and then the seam is sewn closed at the top)
Cast on 32 (34,36,38,40) sts.
Knit 3 rows.
Row 4: Purl 3, knit to last 3 stitches, Purl the last 3 stitches.
Row 5: Purl
Repeat rows 4 and 5 until piece measures 9 (9 1/4, 9 1/2, 9 3/4, 10) inches. Bind off.
This is what the hood looks like when you are finished knitting the pattern. The 3 rows you knitting at the beginning will go around the neck and the Purl 3 part will go around the face.
Fold the piece in half longways, right sides together.
Using a yarn needle sew the seam closed where you binded off. Turn the hood right side out.
Pick up 4 sts at the front of the hood and Garter Stitch for 6 inches. Bind off and weave in end of yarn. Repeat on the other side.
