Knit-a-long Hoodie Project

My two friends decided to have a knit-a-long/competition where they both would knit the same hoodie. When they showed me the hoodie they were planing on making I couldn’t resist joining them in their knit-a-long. These are the images that got me interested in the project. Doesn’t it look cosy and cool at the same time?

The pattern comes from Sandnes garn in the book 1513 DIY and it’s a pretty easy pattern with a regular stockinette stitch, but you’ll have the wrong side out in the end.They recommend using Sandnes yarn “Easy” but I decided to go for DROPS garnstudio’s Eskimo yarn instead since they offer a wider range of colours. I chose the colour “Saphire” which is pictured below. I got both the yarn and a Knit Pro set as a Christmas gift (that I opened early in order to finish this shirt by Christmas) from my beloved P. I’m gonna do a review on those when I have been using more of the sizes.

Knitting is in progress now and I’ll do a post with the finished shirt. I guess it’ll be a review of both the pattern (which is in norwegian) and the yarn (which is so soft and wonderful!). My goal is to finish before Christmas so I can wear it on my vacation (it will be the only warm shirt I’ll bring).
