Cable Hoodie – Update1
Now that I’ve finished my TAAT socks (picture will be posted once I actually weave in my ends, so sometime by 2025 I’m sure) I’ve decided on my next project. It’s called Cable Crush Hoodie and it’s a pattern by Chantal Miyagishima (Knitatude) which you can find on Ravelry and on her own site as well. It’s an absolutely beautiful sweater that includes cables in the front and back, a batwing sleeve construction, and a hood with icord draw string. I’m knitting it in upcycled wool from knitpicks, which is basically wool constructed of bits and pieces of other wool that wasn’t enough to make an entire skein of type A. Chantal’s patterns are easy to follow and use lovely construction, my silver bell sweater was also one of her designs and had I used the appropriate yarn I’m sure mine would have turned out better (not that it isn’t lovely, it is). I’m hoping to do well with this one, and have it turn out as beautiful as all of the others. I have never knit a hood before, but I have done quite a few cables. It’s knit in worsted yarn, so I’m also hoping it doesn’t drag on forever and maybe I can get it completed before Halloween. We’ll see. I’m a bit further along than this picture shows, I’ve done 8 rows of ribbing, and I’m on row 6 of the body. I’ll do row 1-10 4 times, so I’m 6/40. That’s something, at least. The sweater starts out at 230 stitches and grows to 310 – I’m hoping to knit 5 rows a day. Let’s see if I can do it!
