Varese Hoodie by Connie Chang-Chinchio

We have an adorable new Knit Kit called the Varese Hoodie which was designed by Connie Chang-Chinchio. These Varese kits have been doing really well and people are knitting the Varese in various colors of Woolie Silk. Fleece Artist's beautiful wool and silk blend, Woolie Silk, adds visual depth and interest to a classic hoodie with set in sleeves. Lace trims the front pockets, hood and sleeve cuffs, adding a bit of feminine flair to a sporty shape. Gentle princess seam shaping and a hemmed edge gives it the final polish.

The sweater pattern is written for 7 different sizes from XS - 2X, consistent with One Planet's mission of having extended sizes including XS and plus sizes for as many of our knit kits as we can.

Connie Chang-Chinchio is an accomplished designer and you may have seen her patterns in Interweave Knits, Knitscene and other places! She has created several of our most popular designs including the Garland Shell in Black Pearl Yarns Cashmere and the Lacy Rib Turtle and Hexagon Bag in Lanas Puras Melosa. All of her patterns are available as Knit Kits at One Planet Yarn and Fiber.
