Completed: A Black "Collegiate" Style Hoodie

Another hoodie! Yay!

I originally bought this amazing silver and black ribbing with a Rigel Bomber in mind. It’s fantastic quality, by the way! I ordered it from Pacific Trimming in NYC.

I got the sweatshirt knit from Girl Charlee, and it’s 70” wide. I ordered only 1 yard but barely eeked out what I needed. Next time I’ll go for a tad more.

I originally thought that I’d fold the edges of the pockets under so they were a better finish but the fabric just ended up being too thick. I extended the pocket pieces by 1/2” all around to account for the potential change, so the pockets on this version are larger.

I used the same cording from my first hoodie, and a standard black zip.

After the changes I made to my last version, this pattern is definitely on the TNT list for me; it’s a quick make and looks great!
