“Lord Loxley is a T-shirt styled hoodie inspired by my little son, Loxley, who is always on the move! I love hoodies as they are great for outdoors, but wanted a pullover that I did not have to take on and off my son, as he gets quite hot while running around! Hence the idea for a pullover with detachable sleeves!
Lord Loxley is knit from the bottom up, seamlessly & in the round, with a V-neck & hood. Sleeve are knit separately, seamlessly & in the round, with a striping pattern and snap tap sewn on after. Sleeves can also be hand sewn right onto the pullover, if desired. The pullover features a classic cable running up the front & back centers, then up & over the hood. 2x2 Rib is worked along the hem, cuffs, neck & hood edges.
This unisex pullover is fun to knit and will make a great addition to your little one’s wardrobe!
