This easy-to-knit hoodie requires very little finishing since it’s done completely in the round … from the hem to the underarms, then the sleeves are knit in the round, than all are joined and worked to the neck with a hood to finish off. All different kinds of ribs are worked for this cotton-blend sweater in an oversized silhouette – 6x6 for the hem, 4x4 decreasing to 3x3 decreasing to 2x2 decreasing to 1x1 for the yoke, and 3x3 on the sleeve cuff. The sleeves can be worn cuffed or straight and the generous hood completes the look. The hood is edged with garter which on it’s side looks like a 1x1 rib.
The sample is knit using Knit Picks Comfy Bulky in Ivory … giving the design a clean, natural look in an easy-care yarn knit-up in an easy-wear style.
This one will definitely tickle your fancy!
Note: this sweater is designed to be an oversized silhouette
