It’s autumn, time to get the needles out again – and maybe to knit a traditional Bavarian jacket with a hood … ? For all of you who have been waiting for a while: Thank you for your patience, here it is finally, the pattern for the traditional-jacket-meets-hoodie-cardi, which is now officially called “Aidenried”.
The download-pdf pattern is available via ravelry, you don’t have to have an account there to download it. The pattern contains the hooded jacket in five sizes (S/M/L/XL/XXL) and explains in detail how to make it, including things like how to make bias tape or how to graft the hood together and make sure the seam is invisible. Special thanks to my test knitters, without their feedback I probably never would have finished that! Fortunately, I also had the support of a tech editor who checked the whole thing (thanks, Arnhilt Tittes, maybe I can introduce your work one day here?). And an excellent graphic designer then turned a 14-page pdf into well layouted pattern that not only looks well but is a pleasure to work from, I hope! Thank you, Achim!

Nine undyed natural shades and 36 beautifully dyed shades are available. There are so many great colour combinations possible – how about turquoise and pistachio?
Or a classic: dark and light grey?
Or light blue and sunny yellow, which reminds me of the southern France:
Or a light beige and a shiny red?
Ok, I’ll stop now – but in case someone is looking for the perfect color combination for “Aidenried”: I am always happy to advise!
