This version, made from just under two skeins of natural black Eco-wool (about $30 total) on size 10 1/2 needles, is cheaper and more versatile than the self-striping one shown in the book. I hope you can see well enough despite the hard-to-photograph black.




Hudson knits up fairly quickly, and can easily be modified to be worked mostly in the round for those who hate seaming. I'm working on a mauve one now for a birthday present, and am knitting the body all in one piece this time, which is working out great. Thanks for looking!

I love it!  It looks so comfy, and fits you so well!  And a quick-ish, inexpensive, hoodie pattern that can be knit in the round?  I may have to look into this one, myself...

Nice job!  One day I too will make a sweater!  (I'm scared to death of seaming!)  I love your hoodie, though.   Smiley

I second knitchick2! It's so darn cold in my office that I wish I had your hoodie right now!

Ah - exactly what I was thinking for a first sweater attempt.  I *love* cardigans, and this pattern might just be perfect!  How was putting in the zipper?? 

Great job!!

Ooh, love it.  I'm not familiar with eco-wool--how does it feel? Is it scratchy? soft?

Eco-Wool is great! It's soft and a very good bargain.

Nice sweater!
