Little Hoodlum



I have recently been lucky enough to test knit a fantastic new pattern from my friend and 'partner' Julia Stanfield. I tested Little Hoodlum for her, but Julia will be releasing a series of patterns in an eBook very soon. This one is for a customer, but I modelled it on Tessa and I love it! I think I need to knit another in similar colours for Tess as it suited her so much!

The pattern is fun and quick to knit, has a multitude of options and looks awesome knitted using solid colours, semi-solid colours, stripes, with or without the hood, with or without sleeves, etc. I'll be knitting many of these in its various forms I can tell!

  5. Awww thanks Ali! Squeeee! Only slightly exciting...and nervewracking thinking about it. I mean, what if others think the pattern sucks!?

  6. Sheryl, the yarn is homespun (by my customer) merino (I think) and home dyed (also by my customer). I'm not sure exactly what it is, but it's lovely and soft and has knitted up beautifully.

    Julia, so far everyone thinks the pattern is awesome. Beacause it is!!

  7. Julia, the pattern is awesome! Not just for talented and experience knitters like Ali, but for more inexperienced knitters like myself. I Love the neckline on this as you know, and am so pleased with the one I've knit :)
