I've done the sides and 1 sleeve. I'm now workingon the other sleeve. Because I like my jumpers to cover my big bum I've done the sides 1.5 inches longer. Its knitting up real quick which I'm glad about as I get bored easily. Even my mum likes it.

Good job!!

I have finished the sleeves, they are blocked and on the counter drying. Tonight or tomorrow I'll post pictures. I figured I'd "block as I went". Although this is the first timje I have ever blocked cables. I wasn't sure how to do that so I just kinda "fluffed" the cable part up and patted the knitted part down!!

Debkcs, I would just lengthen the body and sleeves by a cble repeat (or two if necessary). You could also lengthen the hood as well but I wouldn't think that would be necessary.

I am making this one for my duaghter who is a pretty stndard size. The next will be for me and I will lengthen the body.

My major question is, where would the best places be to lenthen it, given the cables? And why, in the larger sizes, does the hood not fall correctly? Is this because of increasing the pattern w/o taking the hood into consideration?

Hi Debkcs!

I lengthen sweaters BEFORE I begin the armhole shaping; in other words, before I bind off those 4 or 5 stitches that signal the beginning of the armhole (and chest) area. If you are 6'1" tall, perhaps 4"-5" extra length. The true test is this: what is length stated for the 1X? Measure that length from the nape of your neck, and see where it hits. Then, add a few inches, and see if that is better, etc. I think this hoodie would be adorable as a cropped jacket, mid-hip, or even over the hip! Add the inches that suit your taste. I do it all the time!

Remembering, it will suck up more yarn, so be sure you have enough!

Sleeves done and blocked. Starting on the back. The sleeves blocked a bit bigger than I would have liked. I'm thinking about dropping down a needle size after the ribbing on the body....

By "bigger"...do you mean length or width or both?

I'm proceeding with the rest (back 1/2 done) and am actually considering frogging the sleeves........ but I am going to wait on that for now.

Hello everyone. I have been working on a CPH for my DD in-between a few other projects. Can I join in?
I'm using Plymouth Tweed 100% Virgin Lambswool.
Question. Should I block the pieces before I seam them together?
Here is what I have thus far:

ooooooooooooooohhhh very nice!!

join right in~

I don't know about the blocking. I usually make all in one sweaters and block at once so this is new to me. It would seem like blocking each piece to size would make the assembly go smoother but.... what do I know!!!

I'm about 1/3 of the way up the back but had to put it down for a bit. I have a rolled neck top down sweater that is ALMOST completed (working on the last sleeve) and I was feeling so guilty about it that I had to finish it. But with luck I'll b back to CPH by the weekend WITH another FO'd.
