hooded sweater: free pattern. looks a little tricky with some short rows and a bind-off method I've never heard of, but has great instructions for how to do it all. would be a nice challenge to try some new stuff.
Due to the overwhelming interest in this hat, I have expanded the pattern to four sizes: baby, child, adult small, and adult large. In addition there have also been some other tweaks including a change to a more traditional gauge for worsted weight yarn. The original pattern is still available in the one size for those of you who liked it, and there is now a second pdf with the new sizes and updated pattern.
