El Fin Mr. Central Park Hoodie
I jumped on the Central Park Hoodie bandwagon when I first saw this pattern in Knitscene, Fall 2006 .
After searching for yarn that wouldn't cost me a fortune, Jessica sent me a link to WEBS and some fantastic Araucania Nature Wool Solids which cost me about $35 and change.
I loved knitting this sweater and didn't even mind when I had to re-knit the left front when I didn't alternate skeins and ended up with a very light left front.
Once I got the sweater seamed up, that is when the disappointment sank in.
The sleeves feel a bit tight in the biceps and the sweater feels about an inch too small over all. I'm going to try blocking it again to see if that helps but I admit to being frustrated.
My gauge is spot on for the sweater and I made the size which measured exactly to my bust size. I probably should have made the size up to accommodate t-shirts and such.
