The hoodie is worked in pieces; the cardigan is worked in the round, then the center front and armholes are cut open after the knitting is completed. Although the sweaters are not beginner projects, Annie thoughtfully works the cable pattern to coincide with the two-stitch twist pattern, and once one repeat of the color pattern is worked, the knitter can refer to previous rows (instead of a chart) to complete the pattern. To make these pieces easy for little hands to fasten, the cardigan closes with decorative hooks and eyes, and the cord on the front of the hoodie laces through metal eyes.
