I knit the Central Park Hoodie for my DD in October 2007.
Click HEREto view the details of that FO.
I loved hers so much that I’m making a CPH for myself as well! I’ve just been waiting to find a yarn [I]to inspire me[/I]! I finally found [I]my yarn[/I]! I’m using the new [B]Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed[/B] in color 09, a medium denim blue.
[I][B][COLOR=Blue]Anyway, would you like to join me in a CPH-KAL? [/COLOR][/B][/I]
Since I have been down that road once already, I might be able
to guide you through a pleasant knit and a successful outcome!
The pattern was originally featured in the Fall 2006 Knitscene. The pattern was available in sizing from 32"-48". The [I]new[/I] PDF download has sizes 32"-60".
Wow! A size for every body!
There is also a corrections page. One small minor correction. CORRECTIONS PAGE
Here is the Central Park Hoodie [I]model sweater[/I] which used Tahki Donegal Tweed.
I used this same yarn in the same green as the model for my DD’s CPH.
I swatched my CPH and cast on yesterday…and here is a photo
of my BACK…at 14.5"…ready for the armhole decreasing.
So dear knitter, if you would like to join this KAL…you are most welcome!
In post #2 BELOW, I will list a few tips for getting started.
If anyone joins this KAL, I have additional tips & photos ready to go.
Don’t fret that I’ve progressed this far into the sweater.
You want your mentor to be ahead of the game, don’t you? :teehee:

More photos on page 18. I knit the size 44…but
(on purpose) knit a slightly larger gauge… to render a size 46.
