I've finally finished my Under the Hoodie!
I used Stylecraft aran (20% wool) as I was unable to get worsted wool in the UK.
It is a little bulkier than I expected  even though I knitted the small size (usually I would be medium or large) Not sure if I knitted the neck quite right  - I think I may picked the stitches up too far across.

Oh, I don't think it looks bulky - it looks cozy! I like the colors too. Smiley

The great thing about this hoodie, tho, is if you make it ginormous (like I did), you can *always* felt it down! Extra-super-yummy-cozy. Wink

Your hoodie turned out very well. I just cast on for Under The Hoodie yesterday afternoon. I am 4 inches into the back piece already.  Grin

I am doing one as well....  using "mystery" yarn from my stash (an ebay bargain)....  all I know about it is that it is 100% wool (merino) and knits up to the right tension.........  the main colour on mine is chocolate brown with the wide stripe being cream and the narrow stripes fawn....  I am going to do the sleeves in the chocolate brown I think....

so far I have got most of the back done...  not bad when you consider that I have pretty much knit the entire thing while playing EQ2 (crafting with one of my alts which has to be the most boring thing on earth - press 2 random keys, wait a while, press 2 more random keys etc etc etc repeat ad-nauseum........  so I knit while I am doing it....

The version I am making is also a "stash busting" project for me. I am using up the last of my Red Heart Supersaver stash.  Grin The colors I am using: Aran Fleck for the main color. Black for the small striping and a pink raspberry color for the center section and sleeves. I know, odd color combination...but this is for stash busting purposes and for me to wear, in the end.  Wink I am 3 inches from the first striping section on the back. I did not get very far today.

I can't wait to see your version of Under The Hoodie. I will share mine as soon as I am finished, of course.

I love the hoodie!  It looks very comfortable - not bulky at all.  Smiley

Great job!

I have managed to get the back of mine done now....  Will try to post a pic of it, but will have to get DH to show me how to use the photo editing software (I used to have adobe photoshop, but DH has changed it to something else and I can't work out how to use it!)...

I took it wiht me to knit when I met some freinds for coffee, and got carried away and ended up knitting the back abot 3 inches too long so had to rip it out and re-do the shoulder cast-offs (did that at home - dind't want to admit that I had knit too much when I was with them LOL)....  but the back is finished and  now I have cast onthe front.....
