Open Checkerboard Hoodie by SadDaysCrochet Open Checkerboard Hoodie by SadDaysCrochet
I made a cute hooded sweater! It is mostly open space.

Would you like one yourself? [link] I have made the pattern free to download for everyone!

Heck, please download it even if you don't want to make one- it's my first pattern, and I would appreciate feedback. I don't like the way most crochet patterns are written, so I am trying to make them better. Did I succeed? Only you can tell. My pattern should include everything you need to know- even if you are a beginner!

Also I invented a stitch to make the pattern- I am calling it the asterisk stitch because it looks like an asterisk (8-pointed star). I have a stitch tutorial for it, both in diagram form [link] and in video form [link] .

IN FACT, I have been working on a whole stitch diagram archive for you all to enjoy for free on my website! [link] Only chain, slip stitch, single crochet, treble crochet, and asterisk stitch are finished so far, but I plan to do them all and more in time!

I hope you enjoy all of these things. I am going to take some time off to recuperate, but in a couple of weeks I will be starting my next pattern! (For the dwarven beard helm!)

I love this hoodie! I have downloaded the pattern, but I haven't gotten the chance to start working on it yet. This is really good for a first pattern!

Wow, this pattern is amazing! I have a hard time following the standard patterns, and I just downloaded your pdf and the diagrams are awesome. I cannot imagine how long it took to create all of those illustrations, but thank you so much! I am an extremely visual learner and seeing the grid for the stitches is so helpful. As soon as I get more yarn, I will try to make one of these hoodies, and post you a link to the results. :-)
