Some sweatshirts especially when sweatshirts were first being made had no hood on them. They just covered your arms and midsection and chest.
They may not cover your head. Hoodies, on the other hand, do definitely cover your head and have a hood. There is no such thing as a hoodie without a hood. Nowadays, there are more and more sweatshirts that are being made with hoods on them because hoodies have become so popular. Sometimes, you can’t wear a hoodie because it covers your face too much.
