Sometimes a project turns out better than the idea I had in my head. This hood is a good example. The yarn, Uberyarn in Topaz from The Unplanned Peacock Studio, knits up so wonderfully smooshy and warm on US 13/9.o mm needles and is perfect for a cold winter's day. It takes a whole skein of the super bulky yarn, and knowledge of cables, 3 needle bind-off, provisional cast-on, picking up stitches, and increases and decreases are helpful. Tutorial links and instructions for less common stitches are provided in the abbreviated written pattern. The hood is one size and an oversized fit suitable for teens and adults.
