Connie Chang Chinchio

Austin Hoodie


This simple, classically shaped hoodie designed by Connie Chang Chinchio is knit in one piece up to the armholes with set-in sleeves that are picked up directly from the body of the sweater. The main body of the hoodie is worked at a larger than called for gauge to create a light fabric, while the woven slipped stitch section is worked doubled to play with sheerness and opacity. Minimal finishing is required before this project is cast off and ready for wear.
