anyone know any great hoodie patterns for worsted weight yarn?  i have 1K+ yards of blue sky cotton and definitely have my heart set on a hoodie.  i love rogue but it's aran weight and i'll have to do a lot of calculation to resize for gauge...  which i might do, but i was wondering if anyone else knew of a pattern i should check out!  i'll happily purchase - doesn't need to be free.

i'm an intermediate-advanced knitter.

thanks!!!

Both of these patterns were written for Lion Brand Homespun, which LB classifies as a bulky craft yarn. Maybe you can match the gauge?

So far, all the ones I found say they require bulky. Sorry I couldn;t be of more help.

It's like crack, only with yarn.

I actually just finished my version of this hoodie here on Craftster this weekend and I LOVE IT. The thread has two patterns, the original and a top-down version for those of us who avoid seaming like the plague. It's a super quick knit and easy to modify for a longer version. Plus, it's already written for worsted weight yarn...

My favorite hoodie pattern is the Wallaby by Cottage Creations.

THANK YOU knitjunkee!!!

approximately how much yarn did you use for the original sized version?  i think i saw someone said 850-ish yards?

i'm not sure i'll use my blue sky cotton for this, since i have 1K+ yards, but i've GOT to have something in my stash!

I bought around 780 yards of yarn and used pretty much all of it. We're talking nothing but scraps remaining, but I was able to squeeze out the entire pattern with minimal mods. I thought I bought WAY too much, but the hood sucked up the yarn like no other. Hope this helps, the cropped version took me about two weeks of casual knitting to complete and it was well worth it!
