The classic rethreads hooded jersey.
I've made and sold dozens of these. They are a lot of fun to make and colour block, and I think that joyfulness is somehow conveyed in the finished garments.
They are designed to fit snugly around the hips, or if you like a looser more 'boyfriendy' fit get a larger rather than a smaller size. I tend to put them on models who show the oversized way to wear them. Mine all fit morre snugly than that, and they look great!
The sleeves are generously long - sometimes ridiculously long, so if you like the look of sleeves draping over your hands you'll be happy. I also do big hoods, people love 'em or not. There really is no middle ground to hide in with these lovelies.
This is one of new 2013 jerseys. It's a scarlet red with a mid-brown hood. It has a little brown detail on the inside of the sleeves, and a seam down the middle of the front and back bodice. It's all wool, with a variety of blends - the hood is a heavy merino.
As always, it pays to check the measurements against one of your favorites. These are taken with the garment lying flat and unstretched:
Sleeve: 58cm (underarm seam)
Length of center back of bodice: 47cm
Width of Ribbing: 44cm
