The Harlequin Hoodie !!!

A friend of mine kindly asked me to crochet her a hoody cowl with pompoms….
I started the work last Tuesday afternoon and it was completed this morning!!!!!

She wanted something really colourful, to wear this Christmas time back in Italy (oh yes, she lives in JK, too!!!)…..

I found this pattern, called Harlequin Hoodie, on Ravelry as a free Ravelry download !!!!! WOW !!!!

The designer is Marken of The Hat & I and she owns an Etsy shop here, where she sells her crochet patterns !!!

The pattern is a written one, with no charts to follow….. I'm a chart person, but honestly I didn't have any problem to follow it!!!!

I've used a 5mm hook and the crocheting went smooth and fast!

A kind model (no moustaches today!) helped me to take some extra pictures to show you how the hoody cowl fits on…

Well, I'm really really pleased with the outcome…..

…..what about you girls ????

Hope my friend will be happy of her cowl ( my husband wants one, too!) : I'm giving it to her tomorrow….!!!!!!! ;oD

Happy weekend, xxxx Alessandra
