I wanted to show everyone my FIRST Intarsia project!!!!!!!:woot:

This project was inspired by both Laura Birek’s
Obama-rama chart and Maebajs’ “Yes We Did” (on Ravelry)
I wrote my own hoodie pattern and modified the chart to include “YES WE CAN”, rather than the word “HOPE”.

Pattern: Men's Hoodie, Size 44
Yarn: Herrschner's Worsted Wool

When I read your description I was just expecting to see words on the sweater and when I saw that awesome picture I couldn't help but think "holy crap!" that's really good. I bet everywhere he goes people ask him where he got that sweater! :yay:

Yes! This was my FIRST intarsia. I figured why not try this particular pattern...lol.

Thanks, EVERYONE! To be honest, I was so excited to start the color work, I forgot to add 2 inches to the length of the sweater. Oh well! Live and Learn

THANK YOU!!!:muah:

I just want to clarify that the Obama Chart is not my design. I only modified the chart to include the words, "YES WE CAN". The original chart had the word "HOPE".

It just took me a couple of hours to rework the chart on a new spreadsheet. (increasing rows both horizontally and vertically)
