Knit Simple Fall 2012

I knit this hoodie during spring break in Palm Springs and had the pieces blocking on towels on the hotel room floor. I got some strange looks around the pool while wearing my bathing suit and knitting away with bulky yarn.

The inspiration to embellish the seams with a decorative overcast stitch came from a contestant’s sweater on America’s Next Top Model several seasons back. I jotted the idea down in my sketchbook which I always keep near me when watching tv.

Now that the season is right the raglan hoodie is on the newsstands in the latest Knit Simple magazine. Go get your copy before the Holiday issue comes out in early October.
