Finally, after starting this hoodie almost 3 months ago, after putting it aside because of school, after cheating on it with my Pompom hat, after going throught another busy period at school, after blocking it and sewing the zipper, it's done! Done done done! And you know what? It's gorgeous.
Some good old Cascade 220, basic top-down construction (with a provisional cast-on!), a simple hood and some great color matching, it's all it took to make this awesome cardigan. My boyfriend is so pleased: it's simple, the stripes are catchy (they match his eyes!), and it's über comfortable.
It was the perfect relaxing in front of the tv knit. Stockinette st, no waist shaping (since it's for men), worsted weight yarn, almost no sewing...
I think this cardigan is really perfect for a husband, a boyfriend or a close male friend. I mean, men don't want intricate cabling, complicated construction. They want something simple that they can wear everywhere!
And if you were wondering... yes, there will be a pattern! Give me some time to write it down and be test knitted!
