Pattern Description:

I liked the idea of a boys (or girls) hoodie in James C Brett Marble Chunky, a great value acrylic, machine washable and available in some bright and fun colours.

The combination of texture and self striping/marbled colour works really well, even though it shouldn't. Usually we avoid textured on 'busy' yarns but this seems like a marriage made in heaven.

It is important to work to the stated tension to ensure your garment is the correct size.
