Hi guys!

I have unfortunately gotten subscribed to the Anthropologie mailing list. Why unfortunately? They've got such darn cute stuff!

Anyway, my eyes, my knitting skills and I thought the "Shorter days Hoodie" was such a cute design, we'd like to try and knit it on our own.

I own a ton of these cropped hoodies and I'd love to finally make one now that my skills are up to par. So, my long-winded question is - help me figure this out!

Here it is: http://tinyurl.com/yofv5d

And here's what I know:
-its quite obviously a cable, rib and eyelet pattern. But I'm not sure which cable it is. Here's a detail shot:

-maybe k1, p1, k1, p1, k3, cable?
-next row k7, cable?

-the arms look like a slightly modified cable pattern with thicker ribs
-the ends of the arms are a simple crochet chain
-the hood is two pieces sewn together, and the pattern is something openwork

Ack! I've got to go to a work function now, but any help you guys can give me would be great!

the cabling reminds me of the cabled riding jacket!

I think you'll be able to see the cables better if you choose the color "cayenne", like so:

The cables like this one below, to the left of the button band, are basic cables. They just alternated between holding the stitches in the front and holding them in the back during the crossing. You may want to go to the library and check out some stitch pattern books (Barbara Walker's are good). Otherwise, you could always play around with the crossings and see what you like best.

The cables down the arms, I believe, are the same as the ones above, but on the reverse side (the purl side).

And as you said, the edges of both the sleeves and the body are a simple crochet border. Probably sc around for the first row; then on the second row, *sc, ch 3, skip 2, sc in next stitch* around.

The hood also looks like it may be crocheted to me. Puff stitch, maybe?

Scratch that last. Although it could be a neat look, I took a better look at the back and think it's an openwork knit stitch. Some sort of mesh, maybe. And larger needles were definately used. The yarn might have even been doubled.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley
