More cardigans! Number 11 for 13 Sweaters in 2013.
On Ravelry: Hobbiton Party Field Hoodie
Pattern: Central Park Hoodie by Heather Lodinsky from Knitscene Fall 2006
Yarn: 996 m/1089 yd of Cascade 220 Heathers in #2445 Shire (get it?)
Needles: 4.5 and 5.5 mm
Seamless as far as possible – knit body in one piece (eliminating 2 sts at each side) up to armholes, sleeves in the round two at a time up to sleeve cap shaping
Short-row shaping for shoulder slants instead of binding off, then three-needle bind-off
Added about 5 cm to the length of the body, waist shaping
Kitchener’d the top of the hood instead of 3-needle BO
Picked up sts for front bands all the way around (e.g., what the pattern says for the larger sizes) with 3:4 ratio, multiple of 4+2
Six button holes, each 4 sts wide
The hood is a little pointy at the top and the body could’ve had even more length added to it, but otherwise I’m very much loving it. CPH was in my queue for ages and I’m glad it finally got knit up!
