I've been trying to read most of your questions and comments so I don't ask the same one more than once and annoy you, and so far I haven't seen the one I'm looking for.

I'm not a knitter at all so I'm not sure what the abbrives mean to your pat that you posted..

My question is did you double up the yarn (two skeins) through-out your hoodie? Or did you use only a single strand (one skein)?

My eyes tell me you used 2 skeins together to make this, but they could be wrong. It's just so thick and vibrant...all the stitches really stand out from one to the other.

Thank you for your time and beautiful work you post for the rest of the community to enjoy and share.

since she didn't answer, i'll try to help you out (if that's ok. :) )

k3 p3 means knit 3 stitches then purl 3 stitches. k2tog means knit 2 together.

I don't think she doubled the yarn. I think she just used super bulky weight yarn (the thickest they sell it). & she used 15mm needles, which are pretty big, so I think that's why the stitches really stand out.

I hope this is of some help to you!

Thank you. Sorry it took so long to respond. I just now saw this. Been out of the loop for a while. I attempted to make my own but crochet instead of knit. It worked out okay but was super heavy, and hers looks pretty light. Thank you again :) I'll give it another go soon as I am able

Yes, it has been a while; long enough that I've had the chance to actually try knitting one! :D I would definitely go for the super bulky yarn (something like this [link] ) or two strands of worsted weight yarn (I tried this, but didn't finish it. what I have seems light enough though). I hope that you get the result you are looking for! :D

Do you know where the pattern for this is? I'm interested in making it but I haven't found enough photos to do it myself without a pattern.

Do you use an official knitting guide, or did you come up with the measurements?
