Yours is the same as mine. I decided on a 44 so it would not fit too snug. I have size large hoodies here, that are t-shirt type material and they fit just right but there is no room for anything but a tank top under them. It won`t be done up all the time so the 44 should be fine, I hope.

Hi guys,
I bought some Jo Sharp silk road DK tweed yarn for my CPH.
(which btw, I've been wanting make for a long time).
My gauge came out using a size 9 needle, so I cast on 86 stitches with the plan of making a 36.
Now I'm worried it might not be big enough.
I've only just knit the 4" rib.
When I lay it out to measure, it's only 15" wide...
Is that OK? (sheesh, I sound like a dope)

I'm not sure how far I should go before deciding if it'll be okay or not.

TIA for any advice.

This pattern is a snug fit, or so I have heard from other knitters. I would say if you take a 36" size, make your CPH in the 40" size. I know that I usually take a Ladies Large (the 40") so I am knitting the 44" one so there is room for a turtleneck underneath and so it does not fit like a second skin. Just my humble opinion.

Perhaps ArtLady would give us an opinion on this?

I find myself wondering why there is no 38. If there were, I would do that.
I also wonder what would happen if I made the 40 using size 8 needles.

I definitely want a turtleneck to fit under.
I definitely don't want a skin tight fit.

UGh... I'm good at confusing myself!

You're probably right and I should just frog and CO for the 40.

I think that would be best IMHO, since you only have the ribbing OTN right now. I know of one knitter who made a 36 for herself and now she is going to give it away and make a 40 because the 36 is too snug on her even though that is the size she usually wears.

Good luck!

I agree with Christine. Make the bigger size! You can always do the seam in a stitch or two, if it's a little on the big side, but you can't really make it bigger without a TON of work.

I need some input. I was at work today and didn't have the pattern with me and had time to work on my CPH, beginning the cabling on the front. I cabled front on the LEFT and cabled back on the Right. That's backwards. Do you think it matters? I'm through two cable repeats. Do I frog, or leave it?

So you're saying the one side has a left leaning cable twist...and the other side has a right leaning cable twist?

If so, I'd leave it. They will appear to be 'on purpose' IMO.
I think it is a really nice design feature.

Will it match the back or will it look strange when joined at the shoulder? If it will look good then leave it, but make sure you do the same thing with the other front. If it looks strange when joined with the back then I'd say rip it and redo it, sorry Gina!

Try laying the back out and then holding the front up to it to see how you like the look of it.

It's up to you in the long run!
