The Knitting Corner:
Hooded RIbbed Jacket

This pattern has been aroundfor many years, and
my mom is not sure where she got it from. The orginal copy is badly typed, with no picture and somewhat vague instructions. My mother has made it many times as a shower gift. She always has one on reserve in a neutral color in case of an emergency baby shower! This is Kourtney my niece a few years ago showing off her Hooded RIbbed Jacket that her Grammy Knitted for her. Though it can't be seen in this picture the hood comes to a nice point at the end.
