I just finished a hoodie, and I'm in love with it.
It has fairisle on the hood and on the cuffs. I decided to make it zip up with zippers because it's my favorite way to wear a cardigan. The yarn I used were Ornaghi Fillati Super Sport in various colors. Total 4 colors used for the sweater.
Everything was knitted top down in round, then steeking at the end. It came out a bit roomy with 3" positive ease, but I like the relaxed fit.
It's a rather casual look. Nothing earth sharttering, but nice way to work with colors without going crazy.
I used I-cord for the front edging. Picked up stitches after steeking was completed for the I-cord.
The only sewing was the zipper.
This is totally my style of clothing!
