The cycle of seasons marches ever on…sometimes it’s hard for us knitters to keep up! That’s why Hatcher, a short-sleeved pullover from our friend Julie Hoover, is such a wonderful project. It’s multi-seasonal! No matter when you start—or, more importantly, finish—knitting it, you can instantly wear it. Alone, it’s a perfect light spring sweater. And when the weather once again turns cold, layer it over another shirt for added warmth.
