Silversmith Hoodie

(Photos by Tanu Kallio)

My new favorite hoodie - Silversmith Hoodie. I wanted to make "Aranish" hoodie cardigan with modern flavor. That is why there is Stockinette st included and hood attached. I-cord bind off finishes the buttonband. Cardigan is worked from top-down. Hood stitches are picked from the neck and buttonband stitches are picked from the fronts at last. Major part of this cardigan features mini cables, 1/1 cables that can be worked without cable needle. I have provided a video tutorial for that. 

The sample cardigan is worked with Malabrigo Rios in colorway Sand Bank. Perfect winter cardigan!

Yarn: Malabrigo Rios
Needles: US8/5 mm, US7/4,5 mm & US6/4 mm 

Uusi lempparihupparini Silversmit Hoodie. Huppari neulotaan ylhäältä alas saumattomasti. Hupun silmukat poimitaan pääntieltä ja nappilistan silmukat etukappaleiden reunoista. Suuri osa hupparista on minipalmikoita, 1/1-palmikoita, jotka voi tehdä ilman palmikkopuikkoa (ohjeessa on videolinkki tekemääni videoon). 

Mallikappale on tehty ihanasta Malabrigo Rioksesta värissä Sand Bank.
