Katje appears to be a basic shawl collar hoodie but her construction is a bit surprising. She is knitted from the top of the hoodie down and is completely seamless. She is also very easy to modify; knit her longer, shorter, try a different edging or cuff. Whatever you do, she’s a fun and quick knit on #9 needles.
General knitting skills plus provisional cast-on and knowledge of short row shaping.
