What materials did you use? I spun the yarn for this project from a blend of Angora rabbit fur and a soft Merino wool. I am going to try offering to do custom handspinning on my web site and see how it goes. Visit nancyelizabethdesigns.com for more.

What are you most proud of? I have now published this and a couple more multi size and illustrated patterns. Ive been asked so many times over the years to write out my designs and I am finally doing it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? enjoy. this one is addictive especially if you use handspun luxury yarns but any natural fiber yarns will be wonderful.

The yarn looks amazingly soft and silky. This is one very warm little hoodie for those cold winter days ahead. Gorgeous color, too. I wouldn't mind having one for myself.

Thanks so much 2strings. I'm working on the pattern for adult sizes right now so you can knit one for yourself. I sometimes have time for custom work too. if you are interested please email me nancy@nancyelizabethdesigns.com

So cosy! His the blend 50:50? I've been playing with blending angora, merino, alpaca and silk. It's the best yarn I've made so far.

If I remember correctly I started to play with a 50/50 blend and leaned to a blend with less Angora as the colour was more clear and there was still plenty of softness and halo.
