Starting Central Park Hoodie

Am wondering if anyone has knit the CPH in the round and, if so, how many stitches should a person cast on for the size 40? Thanks!

I did not knit it in the round, but you can figure out the number to cast on by subtracting one stitch on each edge which would be used for the seam:
(number for left front - 1 ) + (number for back - 2) + (number for right front - 1)

I don't have the pattern in front of me for the exact numbers.

Do you mean knitting the fronts and backs in one piece or actually knitting it in the round? (Like a pullover instead of a cardigan?)

Toad said...

Lara, I would knit it as a cardigan with no seams @the sides binding off w/3-needle bindoff @shoulder and then picking up the sleeves and knitting them in the round downward.
