I made this and it turned out well. I too needed to add two inches of garter border to the hem because the measly 5 rows of rib didn't work out at all enough.

I added stripes to the hood too, to bring a bit of interest, and did the borders of the pocket in seed/moss stitch rather than rib.

OK - I'm doing this pattern, but my gauge is slight off 20.5 sts = 4 inches, instead of the required 19 sts - will this mean I have the world's smallest hoodie if I go ahead anyway?

How much difference will it really make? Maths kills me and I'm dying to start!

I know this is an old thread, but anybody interested in making one of these?  I was thinking that since summer is on its way--At least I'm pretending it is--that this one could be knit in cotton.   I'm thinking Blue Sky Alpaca dyed cotton.  Does anyone think that would work? Or would it just stretch out too much?  I've never knit with cotton before, and I'm dying to try the Blue Sky cotton.  It's so soft and plushy!

I'm not sure - I don't think cotton would have much 'give' - and it's tough going to knit with. If you knit it a size bigger it might work - but then what if it just looks too big?

What about a cotton blend?

Unfortunately, you may be right.  Although, the blue sky alpaca cotton doesn't feel like any other cotton yarn that I've seen.  it seems to have a little more give than, say, sugar and cream.    Huh

Beautiful color combo, I love it!!

Hey, I know this is knit in flat pieces, but has anyone changed it around to be knit in the round? I love knitting in the round but have yet to master altering a pattern to do so. PM me or post here, greatly appreciated. I love this thread Cheesy
