This turned out far better than I expected so I thought I'd share. In cleaning out a bunch of old patterns I found a simple hoodie top I had copied out of a book. Don't even know what book it was; probably one I got cheap, kept a couple of things I liked from, and then hauled off to the used bookstore to supplement my income.  Cheesy

Anyway, I decided to try it while recuperating from my recent surgery. The day before I went back to work last week I had it all done & assembled and started to put the hood on, by picking up stitches around the sides & back of the neck opening and knitting up. I did a few inches...and then I stopped cause I noticed it was making a neat little polo-type collar. I tried it on. I liked it. I quit. hehe

So here is my un-hoodie!



If you have a pattern that calls for the hood to be knitted on last, you could probably do the same thing. Enjoy.

Cheap yarn knitty...Lion Homespun. I have 2 pair of 'no-sweat pants', a pattern that came from a back issue of Interweave, that I made from it, and it washes and wears like a dream. I think this color is called Tudor. I didn't even know it striped until I got going on it.
