CONNIE CHANG CHINCHIO

Austin Hoodie

$10.00 Each

It’s a classic hoodie that’s easy to wear. Simple, with small details to make it special, the Austin Hoodie is worked in Tosh Merino Light, a rounded single ply yarn dyed in Madelinetosh’s exquisite and subtle colorways. The main body of the hoodie is worked at a larger than called for gauge to create a light fabric, while the woven slipped st band is worked doubled to play with sheerness and opacity. Great for layering and easy to knit, the Austin Hoodie is made in one piece up to the armholes with set in sleeves that are picked up directly from the body of the sweater and worked down to the cuffs. Minimal finishing ensures that once this project is cast off, it’s ready to go.
