The idea for this hoodie came to me unexpectedly as I was packing Leda for the holiday in Europe. I took out all shoes that I had for her size and found really gorgeous looking pair of red sneakers. Immediately I thought it would be lovely for Leda to wear those together with a red coloured hoodie with a zip. So, I took all necessary supplies with me on holiday and knitted it while in France and Russia.
I used a pattern for 14-inch Kish dolls by Becky Colvin – I only had to make the sleeves longer!
So, here it is, with the sneakers, of course! I used fingering weight wool yarn from www.knitpicks.com, knitting needles 1.5 and 2 mm (US size #000 and #0), and a separating zip.
