I just finished the Top Down Hoodie from Knitting Pure and Simple. This was a fast knit. I used Berroco Ultra Alpaca. Lovely yarn. This is a very simple and basic pattern but I ended up hemming the sleeves and bottom edge. I also added a bit of waist shaping and made the side vents overlap instead of being just a “V”. This improved the fit dramatically. More details here:
My daughter took my photo, it’s so hard to pose and give instructions at the same time.
Also this sweater is so cozy and warm! It is very, very comfortable. It is cold here and I am wearing it now and really don’t want to take it off.
