Cable Hoodie – Update 2
The upcycled yarn I decided to go with for this cable crush hoodie is rustic and beautiful to knit with, but it’s hard to get the overall effect of the texture because I’m using 22″ needles that are quite small for the project that I’m working on (I decided to make this shirt oversized, so I’m knitting a 2XL which is one up from my actual size). The knitting on this stretch of 40 stitches is methodic and calming, out of a 10 row repeat only one of them is knitting the actual cables. I’ve been sticking with my goal of knitting 5 rows a day but it does take a few hours. I’ve also dropped a few stitches but I managed to pick them all up. I think I’m in good shape for whatever comes next. The project has “bat wing” sleeves, which means when you raise your arms it looks like giant bat wings, and I’ve never done those before. I’m cautious about the hood portion, and I just hope the whole thing turns out well. For now I’m just taking it step by step and doing one row at a time.
