Fairisle Hoodie

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!


  1. You are amazing! You must not sleep! It's really cute! I love the fair isle on the cuffs.

  2. oh wow, that is absolutely stunning!! Holy smokes, are you thinking of doing a pattern for this?

  3. a great design I immediately fell in love with
