Pattern of the Week: First Class Hoodie

I’m not a “business casual” kind of person. Everyone in the Interweave office would agree. Most days I wear the same pair of ripped blue jeans with a knit pullover or cardigan layered over an oft-worn t-shirt or tank top. Additionally, I’m most comfortable in hooded sweatshirts and have tried to start a trend at work—Hoodie Fridays (no one else participates). This is why I LOVE the First Class Hoodie from knitscene Spring 2019, a gorgeous wool hooded sweater designed by Cheryl Toy.

The First Class Hoodie is an everyday piece that layers nicely over a T-shirt, jeans, or even leggings. An elegantly simple eyelet rib pattern features prominently and provides some knitting intrigue, and the hood, a beautiful and practical addition, is attached with a three-needle bind-off.

My favorite color to both knit and wear is green, so I’m thinking about knitting this hooded sweater in the Verdant Green colorway from Cascade Yarns. Dark Peacock Green is in a close second place. BRB gonna see about finding this yarn . . . Stay tuned to see my green hoodie!
