Pattern Description:

I love hoodie-sweaters ... and I really enjoy designing them. I've always wanted a sweatshirt-style cotton hoodie but hated the idea of knitting a cotton bulky that would be heavy and "grow"! So, for this one I used a cotton-acrylic blend that holds the cotton in check from stretching AND looks good AND is not heavy at all.

For the colder times of the year, this would be a fabulous sweater done in a wool-blend ... just make sure it's lofty and not a heavy, stiff wool.

The entire sweater is knit and purl, ribbing stitches so it's a great one for someone that is just starting to go beyond plain stockinette. Rib Tickler requires very little finishing since it's done completely in the round ... from the hem to the underarms, then the sleeves are knit in the round, than all are joined and worked to the neck with a hood to finish off. All different kinds of ribs are worked for this cotton-blend sweater in an oversized silhouette - 6x6 for the hem, 4x4 decreasing to 3x3 decreasing to 2x2 decreasing to 1x1 for the yoke, and 3x3 on the sleeve cuff. The sleeves can be worn cuffed or straight and the generous hood completes the look. The hood is edged with garter which on it's side looks like a 1x1 rib.

The sample is knit using Knit Picks Comfy Bulky in Ivory ... giving the design a clean, natural look in an easy-care yarn knit-up in an easy-wear style. You could also knit this in a bulky wool for a warm, classic look.

This one will definitely tickle your fancy!

Hi, my name is Mary Gildersleeve. I began designing shortly after teaching myself to knit at the age of 8, primarily because I do not take commands very well and I also could not afford the fancy yarns back then. Knitting and designing were my constant activities throughout undergrad, grad school and family life until, in 1997, I finally went professional and established By Hand, With Heart ... ...
