I try to figure out a pattern for this (left one)

You can look at the details here

I have some basic ideas about the construction but I am not sure about the stitches...

I know how to make bell sleeves, I think I can do the hood,  adding some ruffles ... It might be easier to start from a fitting basic pattern ... any ideas?
Anyone who would like to develop a pattern with me? Anyone who has an idea about the construction of other parts of this?

What about something like a pattern-along (followed by a knit-along?)...

OMG. I've been lusting after this sweater but can't spend $400 on a hoodie, and was about to make the same post you just made!

While I can knit, I've been thinking it might be easier to crochet for this project, since there seem to be so many pieces involved.. this way, I could readjust without losing stitches, and attach and reattach as needed, especially for all the braided trims, like the braided border around the hood.

I don't think i'm going to use a pattern, just fit, and refit as I'm going.

What if you knit it, and I crochet it, and we see what happens!?!

Also, what yarn are you thinking of using? I want something cheap, but soft, yet stitchy. Preferably in the same mushroomy color.

Ok, here are my random thoughts and observations.

The arms are stocking stitch on the lower section. I wonder if you could look at knitty's forcast for an idea for the bell sleve.

The yarn looks fairly chunky and loosely spun (I'm not a yarn expert so I'm not really sure how to describe this).

The collar looks like a stocking stitch tube, sewn onto the sholder with some kind of cabley edging, I guess that's the beginning of the hood. The ties that come through it are I-cord with a knot at the end to make the tassle.

The bottom ruffle is about 14 rows give or take with some decreases at the top.

The front seems to have some kind of wavy drop stitch pattern. and there's some kind of ribbing at waist hight to pull it in. It's aprox 12 sts across and knit sideways, probably picking up stitches from the drops stitch  section. (Actually, looking at the other side of the pic, it seems to be a pocket).

There are a couple of columns of stocking st on the zipper side of the drop stitch patttern. I don't know what the next few columns are.I'd call the the upper sleve pattern a beehive/ hexagon/waffle stitch.

On the reverse pic you get a better look at the cable across the edge of the hood. And the very purdy drop stitch pattern across the back.

Can't write more must go.  Tongue
