Green Bean Hoodie

My first try at working with stretch material. I shortened the sleeves to 3/4 and also shortened the hood slightly. I don’t think it usually gapes at the front it’s only because my husband gave me about 30secs camera time before he wanted to return to photographing the amount of broad beans we picked. I also have suspicions that my dog is a vegetarian…..all in all the top was quick and easy using a double needle (not quite lucky enough to have an overlocker yet)

Material Notes

some sort of stretch – I’m not up with the play on knit material yet there seems to be so many different kinds.

    I want to try this pattern too. Was it difficult? Love the colour. I have some grey jersey that I am going to hold on to to use for this. Can you buy knit off the roll? or do you have to knit it yourself. That is a really naive question I know, but I have no clue when it comes to knit fabric.

    Anyway, love the colour on you and the garden! Hope the greens were tastey. :)

    Well done – it looks great on you. I am jealous of those lovely broad beans.
