She Knit an Amazing Top-Down Technicolor Hoodie Sweater in Just 8 Weeks!

She Knit an Amazing Top-Down Technicolor Hoodie Sweater in Just 8 Weeks!

Chrome64 emailed me to tell me that she’d finished her big AMAZING sweater project. Well, truth be told I am impressed. This would take me a decade. At least. Do you want to knit one? Here’s the pattern.



“If you are looking for the pattern, I started with the Knitting Pure & Simple pattern for a Neckdown Long Hooded Cardigan (#225). But somewhere past the shoulders, it took on a life of it’s own!

Great work Chrome64 and thanks for sharing your good news.

PATTERN: Neck Down Long Hooded Cardigan, designed by Knitting Pure and Simple.
