no pattern? no problem!
Actually, me - pattern = disaster. But I'm not currently knitting anything I'm all that excited about (i.e. for myself), so I brazenly decided to whip some yarn out of my meager stash and knit up a hoodie! (I must be going through my Hoodie Phase, since I also have yarn on the way for a lace hoodie from Rebecca 32.) I couldn't find a pattern I liked in any of my books or magazines, so I decided to modify this Craftster pattern. It's not going to be a shrug, since I came out of my Shrug Phase quite some time ago. Instead, I'm knitting top-down using the number of CO stitches, the neckline increases, and the hood instructions from that pattern and modifying the rest. I'm going for short sleeved, full length, zip-up, with cables along the zipper and edge of the hood. So far, so good. I needed a semi-mindless project to take to knitting club anyway!
