all done

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Pattern: Central Park Hoodie from Knit Scene (Vogue Knitting)
Pattern Modifications: Shortened the ribbing. Used larger armhole directions and and larger sleeves (around). Sewed the hood down so it would be a little less pointy.
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Donegal Tweed ~12 balls
Yarn Source: Knitter's Palette
Needles: US Size 4 and 6 Addi Turbos
Zippers/Toggles: None for now. Might add some later.
Yarn Bought on January 14, 2007/Project finished January 28, 2007 (a personal best)
What I would change: Might add pockets. Would pick up fewer stitches for the button band. I picked up 160 which resulted in a slightly ruffled hood.

I really like this color! It looks like the sleeves fit well, so modifying them was a good move.

Lara said...

So fast! I've been working on mine for what seems like forever!

Christina said...

wow, that looks lovely. Really pretty colour.

JaneDB said...

WOW, that is beautiful! Is that yarn softer than the tahki d.t.? Love it!

Elizabeth said...

I love it!! Every time I see one of these finished, I get so itchy to finish mine. And the color is great. I took a workshop with Sally Melville this weekend and she was really great about explaining how to modify patterns to make them fit one's body. And the first thing I thougth of was the sleeves on this sweater since so many folks have said they are tight. Looks like you made the right adjustments. I'm not to the sleeve bind off on the back yet, so I am going to do some pattern adjusting as well because I want mine to fit as well as yours does. Great job!!

Excellent job there! Wow, was that fast! It fits you well, good that you could adjust it to do so!
