FO: Heather Hoodie

Filed under:Finished Objects,hoodie,Sweaters — Aileen @ 08:44

This wasn’t in the mood to be photographed with its buttons closed properly today, so excuse the sloppiness.

Pattern: Heather Hoodie from Knitscene, Fall 2009.

Yarn: Twilley’s Purity from This is Knit, in the colour Clay, 9.5 balls.

I love this yarn. I’d never used it before. It’s pretty soft for such a sheepy wool and it blocks out wonderfully.

Needles: 5.5mm.

This is one of those great layer pieces that you can use pretty much all the year around. During the snow over Christmas, I wore it all the time over a lighter handknit sweater.

The only thing I’m a little annoyed about is the hood. The way it’s written is absolutely perfect. I just got bored and decided I was finished with it two inches before it was properly done. It’s a bit tight when I put it up but it keeps my neck really warm the rest of the time.

Buttons were from Knopenwinkel in Amsterdam. I’m thrilled to finally have knit a sweater worthy of these buttons. Such happy memories!

  2. It’s so pretty!! You probably won’t wear the hood up that much anyways. Looks great!

  4. Very pretty! I love the buttons. This looks so cozy – and the hood doesn’t look that short. Great knit!
