Twinkle Hoodie

Posted by 2ton Inspired on October 29, 2007

Who doesn’t love the perfect cold weather hoodie?

This was a super quick project. Going the el cheapo creative route, I used Lion Brands A Pound of Love in Denim quadruple stranded (low budget but it does require some patience and mad skillz to re-wind the balls into quadruple strands).

I also decided to go the creative route with the buttons and made my own using the stiff mesh, some interfacing and mini 12×12 ss st squares. Not only do they match perfectly but I didn’t have to spend time searching out those 1.5 inch buttons!

Surprisingly the only modifications I made were to the sleeves (longer) and I skipped the pockets. No need to add extra bulk in there! Ok, so I got stuck on the pocket part of the pattern and scratched it. Either way I like the way it turned out sans pockets.

    Your sweater looks fantastic! It looks fantastically warm and snuggly and I love the colour.

    It doesn’t matter what the yarn cost if you like the finished product! I love the buttons too! Very creative.
