Knit Night

When I posted about my new Aran sweater, I mentioned that it was to trade off with my other favorite winter sweater.

Sweatshirt Sweater


Behold the Sweatshirt Sweater by Purl Soho. Like a favorite sweatshirt, this is the coziest, easy to wear sweater — and perfect for the sweater-knitting initiate. I added a hood to mine just for fun. I wear it out with jeans and boots, but mostly I like to lounge around the house in it and a comfy pair of velour sweatpants.

PS: I’m knitting my first sock in this photo, and after three tries it’s coming out quite nicely.

    I love this sweater! And think I might actually be able to knit it. I have two questions–how did you create hood and what yarn did you use?

    Thank you!


    • Maria, I highly recommend this as a first sweater. Purl’s instructions are well written, and there are no really tricky stitches. If you’re on Ravelry, click the link in my blog post that links to my Ravelry project page — all the details about the yarn I used and how I knit the hood are there.
