Another first -
My 1st sweater! It might not be perfect, but I'm really happy with it anyways. He wanted a surfing type pullover for the beach, this is the closest I could come. I substituted cotton yarn for the stuff called for in the pattern because this needs to be absorbent around water as well as easy wash & dry for playtime, bike riding, etc...
for anyone interested, I used the following:
100% cotton Sugar n'Cream self-striping yarn (cheap at $1.99 a skein!)
Pattern is Lion Brand "Kids to Adult Hoodie" (free download)
Notes ** I substituted the above yarn and used sizes 7 & 9 needles and the pattern written for Child-Large with my substitutions fit the 6 year old boy with room to grow.
