Central Park Hoodie
Knitting daily now has the Central Park Hoodie pattern available as downloadable PDF file. The size range has been expanded. I'm going to try starting this over the holidays. Anyone interested in a "knit along"?

I got my yarn, Lamb's Pride worsted in "Aran" and plan to start in the coming week. There are a couple people who seem interested in doing a KAL. Is there anyone else who like to join us?

This will be my first cable sweater, I've done hats and scarves but not a sweater.

I really want to make this. I have about 1200 yards of Peace Fleece which will be cutting it close. I have about the same yardage in some Elann Alpaca. Of course I have 2 other sweaters OTN right now. ugh!!

Are you making a very small size? This pattern is pretty yarn intensive.

I would love to join in - I love this sweater, but I couldn't start it until early Jan. Would that be ok?

I think the idea of a knit along is that you start when you can. Some of the KAL threads have been going on forever!

I'm pretty sure I am making the 36". A few people on Ravelry have made that size with Peace Fleece and used less than 1200 yards. I would hate to get near the end and not have enough. Maybe I'll see if I can score an extra skein or 2. I really love the color. Sort of a kermit green.

This is the yarn. There are 1 or 2 that I have seen done in this color.
