My New Most Favorite Sweater!

Here it is! I LOVE my new sweater. It may be plain, but it fits perfect, it's not uncomfortable, it's warm, and the hood doesn't drive me nuts.
The yarn is Bulky weight single ply from Brown Sheep Co. (that I recycled from another sweater I made a few years ago) and the pattern is from a Leisure Arts booklet called "Carefree Sweaters". There were supposed to be three buttons up the front opening, but I knew that I would never wear it buttoned up so I eliminated that. And there was supposed to be a little front pocket pouch (like on most hoodies) but my husband said that he really likes it without it. So I didnt put that on the sweater either.
Now I have to make three more! Everyone else in the house wants one of their own.
