After searching for the perfect pattern to knit my first sweater, I finally found the Central Park Hoodie in Knitscene. I think I can handle the pattern and I can't wait to get started. Since I've never done a sweater before, I'm a little stuck on what size to make.

My bust measures at 37''. The pattern can be knit for 36'' or 40''. Which one should I do? I don't want the sweater to be too big, but too tight would be awful too. Any suggestions?

There is a knit along for the CPH on here if you want to join us or check out what's already been written about the pattern.

The hoodie is designed to be fitted, so if you want room I would say to go with the 40", or you could follow the pattern for 36" using 1 needle size up from perfect gauge.

I would recommend taking your favorite hoodie that you already own, lay it flat on the ground and measure the circumference of the bust. That's how I determined which size to knit mine.
