13 Sweaters in 2013: Central Park Hoodie

More cardigans! Number 11 for 13 Sweaters in 2013.


  • 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!
