Being relatively new to knitting (only picked it up last year) meant that I’m only slowly coming round to knit patterns that were wildly popular months or even years ago. One of such patterns is the Central Park Hoodie which was published in 2006.
I love hoodies and wear them all the time. Well, only in air-conditioned places of course, outside weather in Singapore is not exactly hoodie-friendly.
I’m knitting the hoodie in the Rowan All Seasons Cotton yarn I scored on eBay. Before I started the pattern, I even made a proper swatch, blocked and all! Of course, I also cheated and didn’t make a full size swatch but hey, for someone as lazy as me, it’s a miracle that I even swatched at all!
The pattern is really simple so far and works up pretty fast. I decided to go with short rows and three-needle bind off for the shoulder seams after reading the posts on the CPH group on Ravelry. The short rows did kick my arse a bit as I’ve never done it before.
I’m only up to the left front piece so far. I wonder if I can get this finished before June is out. I’m dying to start on the fabulous February Lady Sweater! I’ve always thought the baby version looks so cute!
