Beautiful hoodies everyone! Mine's been on the backburner for awhile now. I have the back and about half of one of the fronts done. Seeing everyone's progress has inspired me to put some more effort into it.

I have around the same amount of work finished on my CPH and I think I'm starting to hit a slump... so everyone please keep posting progress pics! Grin

Is it just me or does the size I'm doing seem small (even stretched)? I'm making the 3rd size up...

Did you go by the measurements in the pattern? I've heard that it 'runs small', but I don't understand how a knitting pattern can run small, because the measurements are there.

Yep, I did go by the measurements. Now, I will be blocking before seaming, so that will obviously help a little. I was thinking the same thing about the measurements, too. Hmm...

Ok, so to answer your question, mine does seem a tad bit small, but when I stretch the ribbing out, it seems ok. What part are you knitting that seems small? Remember that the button band will add some inches in the front.

Yeah, I didn't take the bands into consideration at first, but looking at it now (see pics below) it seems ok. Even with stretching, I'm not getting the measurements quite right, and I have a slightly bigger gauge (1sts per 4 inches). Weird.

And now to the progress pics... Grin

Done done done done!





I had wanted it baggy so I knit it a size bigger than I thought I'd need.  It ended up fitting *perfectly* and I have a skein left over.  I guess my gauge was off...
