My CPH is Done

I've finally finished my CPH, or as I've dubbed it, The Soccer Sweater, since it will be worn at my kids' early morning soccer games in Fall and Winter. The yarn I used is Black Water Abbey in Pink Heathers. It was truly a labor of love, since it took me about three months to complete it, but I am oh so happy! that it's ready to be worn.
I made the 40" version and used less than 7 skeins of the yarn. The mods I made were grafting the hood, knitting the button band in one piece, and picking up about 50+ less stitches on the button band.

Read more about it at my blog. Good luck to those who are still toiling away. It's worth all of the effort!

How did picking up fewer stitches for the button band work out for you? Did it make the CPH fit tighter? Better? Worse?
