CPH KAL FO Summary

I've got the yarn for my CPH now! Cascade 220 Superwash. My gauge is just a little short after washing the swatch and applying a little stretch I'm at 17.5. 48" would be perfect for me around but 14" arms are going to be small, so I'll have to figure that out.

Not all of us are in Ravelry yet so.... I've been perusing this whole KAL over the last couple of days to find examples of Cascade 220 CPH and then I saw someone else who was looking for a particular yarn and I thought I'd take it upon myself to summarize the Finished Object Central Park Hoodies! I know there is a lot of other great info here so don't just skip by it. There are some abandoned CPH that I would love to see how they come out or hear what happened to them! If you want to add info or modify what I put down here, please, leave a comment and I'll update the table in a day or two.

Wow, thanks! Very interesting.

I'll get my finished (except for buttons) post up soon. I did Cascade 220 in the 40" size, btw.

Jill, this is a great idea! I wonder if there is a way to put the table in the sidebar? I'll look into it, and if we can, would you like to be in charge of that duty?

Bear Knits said...

Thanks Jill! This is awesome!

I used 5 1/3 skeins of Peace Fleece Worsted for size 36.

Jill said...

Lauren, Can't wait to see your post!
Bear Knits - thanks for the update! I noticed you updated your post with pictures too. It looks great! I'll look forward to seeing the pink one!
Jeanne - it looks pretty good in the side bar! Thanks for moving it over.
