Thanks for the kind comments!

Did you use a thinner yarn than what was called for? It looks like it fits you really well. I love this sweater but am on the curvy side, so the bulky gauge would not work for me.

I used Lamb's Pride Bulky.  I went up a needle size to try and get gauge but was still half a stitch over.  Somehow I ended up with a skein left? That always seems to happen and I'm not sure why.  If you're on Ravelry, you can check out everyone else's projects. Maybe someone switched yarn weight?

Ta-da! Completed in 8 days. Well, the ends still need to be woven in and I don't have a button for the collar.

Thanks for looking!

ETA: sorry for the sideways pic. I don't know how to fix it.

Aah...I'm waiting for my Donegal tweed to arrive, I *really* hope to have my own hoodie before the end of this winter! Thanks for the inspiration, yours look great and I love the fit!

Do you have any comments on the pattern?

Check your gauge!  Cheesy  I thought I had, but apparently I was waaaay off.  I don't know if you've worked with the Donegal tweed before, and if you have please ignore what I'm about to say.  Since it's single ply, I had issues with it breaking a few times - once pulling it out of the center-pull ball and a couple others while I was seaming.  It's wool, so you can spit splice it, but it's annoying all the same. It's scratchy, but it feels a TON better after you block it.  I haven't gotten around to blocking the hood yet and there's a huge difference.  And it tends to pill wear the sleeve rubs against the body.  Good luck!  I wear the dang thing all the time.

Thanks again for all the nice comments!

Thanks for the kind words!  It *is* very warm, so I've been wearing it a lot.

It only took me 9 months, but here it is!

I wanted it baggy, so I knit it a size larger than what I thought I needed.  It ended up fitting perfectly and I have an extra skein. I guess my gauge was off...

I used the Tahki Donegal Tweed. It's scratchy, but only if you think about it.  Wink

Done done done done!
