Hoodie Knitting Patterns

Every now and then I like to check the top search terms that people are looking for when they visit, and I saw that one has to do with hoodie knitting patterns. I realized it looks like I have never done a roundup of hoodie knitting patterns (which is not to say there aren’t individual pattern posts here) so it seems like the perfect time to do one.

One of my first ever knit sweaters was a hoodie design from Knitting Pure and Simple. The exact one I made doesn’t seem to be available anymore, but this one, labeled the Sport Hoodie by Diane Soucy, is similar (the one I made used bulky yarn and this one is heavy worsted). It’s meant to be loose fitting and comes in six sizes, from 36 to 56 inches chest measurement. You can get it on Ravelry.

Alexandra Tavel’s Clubhouse Raglan is another great, simple, worsted weight yarn hoodie pattern modeled on a hooded sweatshirt. It’s worked mostly in the round with raglan sleeves and a kangaroo pocket. It’s designed to be worn with 10-12 inches of positive ease and comes in eight sizes up to a chest measurement of 68.5 inches. You can get this one on Ravelry.

The Campfire hoodie from DROPS Design is another great classic, with a shawl collar worked in deep ribbing that joins the hood. Otherwise its a pretty straightforward, bulky sweater worked in the round that comes in six sizes, up to 54.25 inches.

If you want something a little less simple, try this chunky sweater from Through the Stitch on Etsy. This one features a cable and diamond stitch pattern (which is a little hard to see if the yarn they chose) and is worked flat with set-in sleeves. The pattern rates it as being for experienced knitters, and it comes in two sizes.

Or add a little texture like in the Tierra Stitchy Hoodie from Mama in a Stitch. This super bulky hoodie is worked flat in pieces in super bulky yarn and comes in five sizes, ranging in chest measurement from 44 to 60 inches (it’s meant to be roomy!) and uses textured stitches as highlights on the body and sleeves.

Why not a hoodie that doesn’t actually look like a hoodie? The Corona sweater by Teresa Gregoria (a free download from LoveCrafts) looks like a sweet shawl collared sweater with three-quarter sleeves and a bit of cabled texture at the neckline, but it also has a hood for extra coziness. This one uses worsted weight yarn.
