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.

DH and DS are a constant source of amusement and encouragement although I'm sure they think I'm mad when I insist on taking my knitting on holiday. I love to knit lace, cables for the challenge and interest and I'm also teaching myself to use my various knitting machines. All good fun.
I have three Labradors, one black, two chocolate. All girls and all as mad as hatters.
