The front is quite plain ...
But the back is what made me knit this
Pattern: #28 Vihervaara -huppari / GreenGable -hoodie, by Mari Muinonen (from Vogue Knitting Fall 08)
Yarn: Schachenmayr Nomotta Extra MErino Big (11 skeins)
Notes + Changes: Knit this with smaller needles to suit my yarn, so I made one size up. As usual, added some waist shaping, and didn't bother putting any buttons since I like the neckline as it is.
It's a very straightforward pattern except for the hood finishing. I couldn't really follow the pattern instructions here (kept getting the wrong stitch count) so I followed Mason204's directions (ravelry link) and it didn't turn out too bad.
In the end the body came out too long, so I had to frog from the bottom and reknit the ribbing a couple of times. A note about the yarn: after washing this will stretch a bit lengthwise, so if you're using this particular yarn, take that into account.
