  11. To answer the person who asked about increasing…knit into the front and back of each stitch to increase. There is a vidoe of how you do that at http://www.knittinghelp.com

    Great pattern! Really enjoyed putting it together.

    cute hoodie – my friend got one for her b-day and i like so totally wanted one and now i can make my own custom one! but i found the one she got in the store and bought it anyways. :( shame on me):

  13. this is an awesome pattern i love it

  14. Love it, but need help. did entire 1st section but got up to “Knit to 1st marker and place sleeve stitches on spare yarn, knit back section and place 2nd sleeve sts on yarn, finish row. There should now be 42 sts.” I have 56 sts? Why?

  15. I think the hoodie is really cute but I am definitely NOT a good sewer,so I am going to need a lot of help!!!

  16. that’s so cute! I love it! guest who needs help, a marker is a device, usually a small ring that you use to mark a spot in your work — you can use a loop of scrap yarn if you need to. check out http://www.knittinghelp.com for how to increase.

  17. what’s a marker? and what does increasein once into stitch before and after the marker mean? PLEASE HELP!

  18. I LUFF IT!! it’s so cute! && im even making them for my friends, THEY even love them! i love the furry part of the hoodie. it’s AWESOME! thank you!

  19. this is THE cutest hoodie. the only thing that bothered me was how complicated it got.

  20. Very cute!

  21. So Cute I Love It!! The Best Ipod Cover I Have Ever Seen!!
