Coastal Hoodie

I finished my Camp Loopy Project III shawl, so cast on my next project during the long Labor Day weekend.  The pattern is Coastal Hoodie and it's knitting up quick.  I'm using the same colors as the designer, but that's what drew me to the pattern. 

The thing that makes this pattern unique is that the purl side is the side that everyone will see.  Normally the purl side is on the inside of the garment.  There are several new (to me) techniques in this pattern also....a hood, pockets, and a "button" band with snaps instead of buttons.
