I'm wanting to make this for my newest addition but am getting confused with the pattern the sleeves and hood mainly.

This part?

Next row (RS) knit 20 sts, then knit remaining 12 sts with a piece of scrap yarn in contrasting color. Slip these sts back onto left needle and knit them again with normal yarn. This will be the left sleeve inset.

Do exactly what it says - k 20, then take another piece of yarn and knit 12, slip those 12 sts back on the L needle and knit them with the sweater yarn. That's like knitting a stitch holder for the armholes. Later you go in and take the scrap yarn out and put the sts on needles.

Now the hood part -
With circular needle, pick up (without knitting) the 32 sts from provisional cast on of left front. Undo the crochet chain. Now, using the provisional cast on by crochet method again, cast on for the hood: with crochet hook make a chain of something like 60 chain sts, and pick up 52 of the chains back loops with the circular needle. End with picking up the next 32 sts of the right front. You'll now have a total
of 116 sts on your circular needle.

- is a little different. The pick up without knitting is just slipping the 32 sts onto a needle, then CO 52 sts and slip the 32 sts from the other front on your needle. It may be less of a hassle to just knit the 32 sts from one side, cast on 52 sts with a loose cable CO or a knit CO, then knit the 32 sts on the other side.

Thanks! That makes a bit more sense to me. I'm beginning to doubt I'll have the time to make this for him though Undecided I also don't have any yarn for this Tongue Bummer. I really want to try this pattern out though, it just seems so cute and manly Grin
