we’re in a little hoodie mood…
not in a hood mood? make a mod:
First, make your initial front bands just along the front edges.
Then, pick up sts along the neckline, from the RS for a band, or the WS for a collar, 1 st for each neckline st and adjust to make a multiple of 4.
Row 1 (& all WS Rows): P3; K2, P2 to last st, P1.
Row 2 (RS): K3; P2, K2 across to last st, K1.
Work to desired length and BO all sts as they appear. (Remember to work a buttonhole in your neckband for a crew neck version).
