I actually knit this a few years ago, but since it's in the book might as well post it! This was from when the hoodie was on the cover of Vogue Knitting, and I knit it in the XS size, out of Brown Sheep ---- not the super bulky yarn they stipulate, but the less bulky yarn that BS makes, can't remember what it's called. IT was a very economical knit, and the color is great - rich and bold - but the actual yarn pills a lot. Guess those are the trade-offs for a cheapo selection. The 'see-throughness' of the stitches is actually less obvious than it looks --- just an aggressive flash showing my tee-shirt!
I made a few mods, mostly on the collar. Knew I wouldn't use the hoodie, so used short rows and increases to turn it into a shawl. Could probably do a prettier job now, but this is one of my first sweaters.
This is a such a great, cute design. It looks great with an A-line skirt or slim jeans. The pocket detail is sweet, and it is super cosy. Surprised that so few people seem to have picked this design from the book! Would really reccommend it!
