Wild berries hoodie
The only thing that separates this pattern from your regular hooded sweater is the zippered hood. Which means that it’s a very nice pattern to use as is or simplified. I chose a double-faced red/bordeaux ribbed interlock jersey fabric that will not fray or roll even if stretched in every which way, how convenient is that? If Ottobre’s is brown and turquoise’s is “blueberry choco”, mine is “wild berries”. Had I had an embroidery machine, I’d have embellished the sweater. But DD adopted it as is so it’s ok.
The instructions for the hood are a bit confusing. Every time this’s happened with Ottobre I found that looking at the pictures of the actual garment was a great help. No so this time: the instructions have you finish the hood with grosgrain ribbon, whereas the pictured garment is overlocked. Looks darn good but not helpful. If I’d read the instructions beforehand and noticed the grosgrain ribbon was going to show, I’d’ve substituted it with some nice girly woven ribbon. Oh well, lesson learned.
A bit big at the moment but you get the idea.
