For my cheeky boy

I have had a couple of things buzzing around in my head to make for Will. Some are necessary like elastic waist pants which are still not made (we're toilet training here). Some were fun and practical. The two Imke tops are fun and practical. Imke is in German, but if you've done a Farbenmix hoodie pattern, you can figure this one out. I love the side and underarm contrast panels. And as per Farbenmix, there is a fun and unique hood. I changed the hood a bit to make it come to a point as opposed to having one with fringe/ribbons coming out of the end. The pattern has a boy version and a girl version. The side panels on the boys' version are straight while the girls' version has a nice curve to it.

I used embroidery/appliques from Huups.
I dyed the fabric which is like a spandex French terry. It came from an Australian manufacturer. I love this fabric and will be sad when it's all gone because it's not being made any more.
