I have an obsession with knit (wool) hooded sweatshirts. I have a few (um.....5) that I wear pretty much every day, but 2 of them are slowly coming to their end.  (Holes fixed over and over, too many trips to the drycleaner, etc.) Of course, this really began to be noticeable as soon as all of the new spring stuff began arriving in the stores so I cant really replace them this season, so I figured, hey, why not knit one?
My  M.O. is worsted weight, Cascade 220 being the best, or knitpicks wool of the andes or elann peruvian wool.  So, I am looking for a fitted hoodie w/ a zipper, pockets optional. My dearest hoodie is heather grey, so that may be the first color I make.

i have looked online (all the usual places) and searched on craftster, havent found anything that i have been amazed with. i figure i can make/modify a pattern, but i wonder if anyone has a great pattern they have used and have been hiding? I want ribbing on the bottom, no cables or anything TOO crazy. think a sweatshirt hoodie, but knit.

thanks guys!!!

http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=81&d_id=10&lang=us

10 sts x 14 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm on size 13 needles.   I've been planning a quickie in this pattern using OnLine 60 Tondo from Elann.  http://secure.elann.com/productdisp.asp?NAME=ONline+Linie+60+%2D+Tondo&Season=&Company=&Cat=ALLY&ProductType=5&OrderBy=+Order+By+Shortgauge&Count=105

The correct gauge for the yarn is 10stx14 rows over 10cm^2 on size 13, not size 17 as per Elann's site.

oh...that first garnstudio pattern looks nice and i think it would be really easy to adjust for gauge with worsted (i usually do 21sts/4" which is basically double what the pattern calls  for...)
thanks!

If you like cables, then you might like Knitty's Mariah (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTmariah.html) which is my current obsession - I'm doing it in Cascade 220 as well, though I've taken a break to teach myself cables on a smaller project because the sleeves on Mariah were driving me insane.
 
Another one that I have been eyeing is Rogue http://www.girlfromauntie.com/patterns/shop/rogue/detail.php, though she doesn't have a zipper so may not be what you're looking for.

the Rogue Hoodie is extremely easy to modify into a cardi...and it's a fun knit to boot.

I'm knitting Mariah as well, and although the cables are taking a while, i find it's really rewarding (let's see if i still feel this way after the sleeves are done).
I love your taste, it's impecable Wink

Wish on everything.
Pray that she remains proud and strange and so hopelessly hopeful.

Thanks!  I just wish that my tastes weren't so ambitious (all I've ever really knit in my life so far is 2 socks and a scarf)...

Best of luck with Mariah - she's a vixen!

I'll second Rogue - love love love that sweater. I wear it all the time and I always get lots of great comments on it. AND, I used Cascade 220!

The link for turning Rogue into a cardigan is here.

And a picture of a modified Rogue is here.

ohhhh...that modified rogue is very nice......
i cast on for sleeves the other day --  basic k2  p2  rib for a few inches ( ILOVE long ribbing on cuffs and hem) and will probably make the  sleeves plain and  then modify the body from rogue.
thanks for the advice!!
