Hoodie Help!

I’m making a child’s hoodie. I have the back made and have now completed the front.

I’ve left stitches in the middle of the front for the neck and have bound off both the back and the front.

Now the instructions go to the Hood and say from RS with larger needles pick up and knit 44 sts around neck, starting at right side of neck and leaving centre 10 sts free. P 1 row etc etc

No where does it tell me to sew the shoulder seams.

Do I sew the shoulder seams then start the hood?



Yes, sew the shoulders before you pick up the stitches.

That’s what I thought, just wanted it confirmed…Thanks!
