in Central Park Hoodie

I had this grey wool hoodie from Abercombie & Fitch when I was in college that I LOVED. I wore itCentralparkfrontcomplete
everywhere…to breakfast on the weekends, to class, to the bar, to bed…I loved that hoodie so much I wore a hole in the arm. This was before I knew how to knit, so repairing it was not an option. Eventually, I had to retire my grey wool hoodie to the garbage can.

Now I have a new grey hoodie that I think will become as loved as the last. Though I do plan to take  better care of this one, I still think it will be worn a lot. Especially since the temperature of my office is close to frigid. I can see Centralparkbackcompletethis little number being dressed up with some black dress pants or dressed down with some comfy jeans.

It probably took me longer than it should have to knit, but I love the results. It pays to take your time and make everything look great!

Pattern: Central Park Hoodie from Fall 2006 Knitscene
Yarn: Knit Picks Swish Superwash in Coast Grey
Needles: Addi Turbos size 8 & 6
Notes: I did not change one thing in this pattern, but I did block at the piece level and at the finished product level. I think it helps for construction and then for fit in the end.

More pictures to come…

Your CPH looks great. One question…how do you block superwash wool? I’m making one for my daughter in superwash, and it will definitely need blocking!!
