Hood Instructions:

  1. Attach yarn to center stitch of the 3 sc that are in between each shoulder. 

  2. Row 1 – Ch.1, make a sc dec over the first 2 stitches (center st and ch.1). Work sc’s all the way around the neckline by working up the left side, across the back, and coming back down. End with a sc dec over the last 2 stitches (ch.1 and center st). 

    It does not matter how many sc you make as long as the st count is an odd number. For reference I made 71 sc all the way around.
