My neighbors' daughter likes hoodies. She asked me to make a sweater for her daughter and now that I found this hoodie they will both be surprised. Can't wait to get started. So many things to do so little time. I forsee some late nights in my near future. Christmas is coming, my neighbor's daughter, her kitty, my daughter best friend's having a baby SOON, my grandsons' oh where does it end? Oh but I love it.

Please clarify the yarn used in Hooded Sweater Crochet pattern...I can't find "Bernat Chunky" anywhere. What is a good substitute? Or is there another name for it?? Please help as I need to make this for a Christmas present!

I just finished this in a 2/3XL and I could likely have made it smaller as it's so roomy! I did make it a little longer in the body (added on about 10 more rows) as I prefer to have my sweaters cover my bum. I used a variegated colourways as I love how that yarn works up, and I am very impressed. I did not have any issues with putting it all together, even with the unusual shoulder construction.

Pattern doesn't make sense with the arm holes. If you miss the 16 stitches on back and front that puts the bust down several sizes. How can the finished size be 46 (doing the large size) when the front/back is 42 inches and from the armholes up is 34? Does not make sense at all to lose those 16 stitches to form the arm holes. Trying to adjust it, but not sure how I can do that.

Love that this goes up to a size 5X. Bernat has a lot of larger plus sizes, which are very hard to find!
