Chill Chaser

Just finished this little sweater for my 5 y/o great nephew. The buttons are little cars and he seemed to really like them.

This was my first attempt at pockets. One came out great, the other has a little issue or two, but not too noticeable. The pattern is available here:

The car buttons are a nice touch to a smart looking hoodie.

As a huge fan of baby sweaters, I love this!!! It's so great! I want to try it out. I assume it's NOT done in the round? The buttons are perfect too!! You did a wonderful job!

No, this pattern is not done in the round. I need to learn how to convert patterns to the round because I've found that I do not enjoy seaming -- even little sweaters!

Otherwise, the pattern is well written and easy to follow. I was confused a bit on the raglan decreases, but if you've done them before, you'll have no trouble.
