I had this idea in my sketchbook for a while. The whole project is inspired by the fabric I used for lining the hood. My grandmother gave me this crazy patterned polyester fabric. While I loved the colors I thought the pattern would just be too “ugly” to make an entire garment from it and too nice to just hide it inside a garment as a lining. So I came up with the idea of this pink sweater with a lined hood.
The pattern is based on an old hoodie I had lying around. I spend a lot of time this year on my applications for design universities. So it felt really good and relaxing to create something just for fun.
The knit was perfect for this – very nice and easy to sew.
