Our baby marbled hoodie pattern has proved so popular and we were being asked for Adult sizes, we will be releasing the children’s sizes very soon so the whole family could have one. The hood features the textured pattern and a ribbed band for a good fit. We used James Brett Marble for our hoodie but you could use any chunky yarn which gets you the same tension (gauge), the sample shown above used a heavy aran Patons Jet.
This is the adult pattern and is sized from a 32 to 60 inch chest. The cardigan features two optional pockets to the front, optional waist shaping, ribbed bands and an attractive textured pattern on the yoke area. Worked flat using two needles and one circular needle for the hood/button bands, this is an easy knit and suitable for a first adult garment.
The garment is designed to be worn with 0-6 inches of ease, choose the size with the correct ease for your preference. The sample is shown on Victoria who has a 38in bust, she is wearing the size 36 with a finished size of 42in, for 4in ease.
