The hoodie is a deceptively simple, straight forward, and pleasurable knit–the cable pattern is beyond easy. It looks far more complicated than it actually is! The result is absolutely classic. All those stretchy, forgiving cables make the hoodie vest a versatile piece that would flatter a variety of body shapes. This would make a good project for a knitter looking to make his/her first sweater.
The yarn is soft and luscious, but a little sheddy. A word of caution: very easy pattern–-but be careful, the end result is slightly Flintstonesque–-or is it just me? In any case, it’s boxy since I opted out waist shaping. I trust blocking will take care most of the issue. I need to find some toggle buttons for this everyday garment.
One very big smiley face for this knit so far. Thanks Debbie for such a wonderful pattern. I am grateful for Ravelry. It keeps me inspired to knit.
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
