ARTLADY'S Central Park Hoodie KAL

I knit the Central Park Hoodie for my DD in October 2007.
Click HEREto view the details of that FO.

I loved hers so much that I'm making a CPH for myself as well! I've just been waiting to find a yarn to inspire me! I finally found my yarn! I'm using the new Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed in color 09, a medium denim blue.

Anyway, would you like to join me in a CPH-KAL?
Since I have been down that road once already, I might be able
to guide you through a pleasant knit and a successful outcome!

The pattern was originally featured in the Fall 2006 Knitscene. The pattern was available in sizing from 32"-48". The new PDF download has sizes 32"-60".
Wow! A size for every body!

There is also a corrections page. One small minor correction. CORRECTIONS PAGE

Here is the Central Park Hoodie model sweater which used Tahki Donegal Tweed.
I used this same yarn in the same green as the model for my DD's CPH.

I swatched my CPH and cast on yesterday...and here is a photo
of my 14.5"...ready for the armhole decreasing.

So dear knitter, if you would like to join this are most welcome!
In post #2 BELOW, I will list a few tips for getting started.

If anyone joins this KAL, I have additional tips & photos ready to go.

Don't fret that I've progressed this far into the sweater.
You want your mentor to be ahead of the game, don't you?

More photos on page 18. I knit the size 44...but
(on purpose) knit a slightly larger gauge... to render a size 46.
