CPH is done

It went from this ...

to this ...

Central Park Hoodie
Pattern: Knitscene Fall 2006
Yarn: 5+ skeins Peace Fleece in Lena's Meadow for size 36
Needles: Addi Circulars in US #7 and 8
(01/06/07 - 02/18/07)

Modifications: I ended up picking up 158 stitches for the button band. Otherwise, I followed the pattern (See errata on web site). I decided on 5 buttons for the closure.

Hood lays down perfectly

My daughter loves it and asked for one in Pink.

Thanks to all the contributors! I loved seeing all the lovely CPHs. It really helped me finish this project.

Lovely sweater -- I like it in this yarn. Will you use the peace fleece pink? Or something else?

Brown Berry said...

Very nice knit!
That color looks so cozy, and I really like how the hood came out.

Your sweater looks great. I've just finished the back on mine and seeing your finished sweater is good motivation to keep knitting. I'm planning to use buttons as well and am wondering where you purchased yours.

Bear Knits said...

Your comments are precious! Thanks! I'm looking forward to seeing all your finished CPHs, too.

Daughter's may be in cotton. Any suggestions?

Buttons are from Hancock Fabrics. I brought my sweater with me since I did not know what size to buy.
