May The Force Be With You

every year, i give my kids a chance to pick a sweater for me to knit them.  this year my son requested a sweater that looks like yoda's jacket.

yoda sweater

pattern: my own
yarn: imperial yarn tracie - 2ply sport weight, 2 skeins + a little more
needles: size #4 circular

this sweater was knit with the same construction as the sunset cardi and e's little pink sweater.  was so simple i don't really have much to say about it.  the only changes from those two sweaters are 1) it is very long.  yoda's jacket goes down to his feet but i didn't really think that was very practical...

2) this sweater is not asymmetrical - the opening in straight in the center

3) there is a huge hood.  what would a yoda sweater be without a huge hood that covers your eyes!!!
