Using the cast-on tail, work a crocheted edge on one edge of the hoodie (this will be the front end)

Finishing: Weave in all ends that can’t be used to sew seams. Sew side seams 1 to 1 ¼ inches. Sew on sleeves, pinning them first so they end up right side out. Sew up hood into 1 piece, narrowing it a little at the top so it doesn’t form an elf peak. Sew the hood onto the neck of the sweater. Sew on 3 snaps for closure.

(Please excuse the hazy pictures. I got a new camera and am just learning how to use it.)

      To be honest, I’m not quite sure I did that part right. My grandma saw me edging something I’d knitted once and said I had my “own method” when it comes to crocheting. She’d never seen anyone else do it that way before, so it probably isn’t corect. At least it holds. I’m edging a teddy-bear sweater for my next post, so I made sure to take a lot of pictures of that step this time around. Hopefully they will be up within a day or so.
