Nadine’s Pullover & Hood
I love the drama of this sweater with separate matching hood by the Red Heart Design Team. The pullover features cables and is worked sideways in one piece from sleeve to sleeve.
Powder Ridge Hooded Vest
Seed stitch hoodie sweater is a quick knit in super bulky yarn. S/M (L, 1X/2X) The pattern doesn’t give yardage. I’m guessing based on the recommended yarn (Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® Bonus Bundle 4 (5, 6) balls) that the yardage is 696 (870, 1044) yards of yarn.
