Cabled hood

Hi all - I've loved looking at all the finished and in-progress CPHs! I wanted to share a photo of my finished hoodie. I did continue the cable up the back of the hood and just started the decreases a little early to make it end symmetrically. I used a weird shade of Tahki Donegal Tweed.

I love the cable up the back. I'm almost there, so I will have to do that as well. And I don't think the shade is weird--it's really lovely.

That's exactly what I want to do with it! It adds a nice "finished" touch. Good job!!

Oh man---- I wish I had continued the cables....pretty pretty;)

Next time;)

Madge said...

Great job! I really like how the continued cable looks. Hmm, I'm gonna have to try that, too. :)

Hilary said...

That looks great; I wish I'd done that!
Did you seam your hood or kitchener it? I'm wondering if you can do the button band in two pieces and *then* kitchener the whole thing together ...

Liz T. said...

Thanks, everyone. I'm happy with how it looks.

Hilary - I did a 3-needle bindoff at the top and then I did the button band in one looooong piece. If you do the band in 2 pieces, you won't have live stitches at the top edge to kitchner, I don't think.

the cables look great! i thought about doing that on mine but i was in too much of a hurry to finish...i love it though. orange is a kick-ass color!!!

Hilary said...

If you check this again -- do you think you could do the button band in two pieces, THEN kitchener the hood, then seam up the little bit of button band? Or would that look weird?

Liz T. said...

Hilary - I think you could but you might have to be careful about the number of stitches right at that seam on the button band. If you bind off the hood and then sew the hood and the band, then one stitch on each side goes into the seam. If you kitchener, you just want to make the transition smoothly from no hood seam to button band seam. But since it's ribbing, it's forgiving.

I may be overthinking that.

Doing the button band in one long piece isn't too scary. I used 2 needles, though.

Thanks so much again Liz! Sorry for asking this question in so many places – I'm sure *I'm* overthinking! :) Maybe I'll just do it in one piece.
