This fun hoodie is made in stockinette stitch but with a different, fun technique. You use a small needle in one hand and a large needle in the other hand. This effortlessly creates a lacy, textured stitch. Beginning at one cuff, you work across the front and back yokes, then down the second sleeve. Stitches are then picked up for lower front and back sections. The hood is picked up and knit around the neck opening.
Suggested substitute yarns:
Contessa 4ply, Marquesa 4ply or Regina 4ply (with same yarn requirements).
Prezioso, Silk Cloud, Silk Dreams or Soie du Jour (for an even more luxurious sweater) knit double-stranded (Same number of skeins required, as yardage is double or more)
