The Houston Hoodie is perfect for fall! It’s a simple pullover, with a fun hood added to it. It’s warm and cozy for when the weather changes and the leaves begin to fall. I live in a hoodie during the fall and winter months, so I knew I wanted to make myself a crocheted one.
I used Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn to create the Houston Hoodie. Impeccable is a worsted weight (#4) yarn. It is 100% acrylic, is soft but sturdy, and comes in a wide variety of colors. I chose the colorway Soft Rose for mine. It is a nice dusty pink, a perfect fall color! I highly recommend this yarn, but you can use any worsted weight (#4) yarn you choose.
You could really get creative with the colors on this one. I think it would be beautiful in a self striping yarn full of fall or neutral colors!
I rated this crochet pattern Intermediate on the difficulty scale. The stitches are very basic but it does require a bit of garment making knowledge. You’ll need to know all of the basic stitches, including single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet.
The workup is top down, with the hood and sleeves added at the end. This project is versatile and can be made longer or shorter in both the body and the sleeves.
Also, the pattern comes in adult sizes X-Small to 3X. You’ll find the garment has about 2-3″ of positive ease. If you want a looser fit, I would recommend going up a size, or at the very least going up a hook size.
