dont go with 7!!! (i assume you mean positive ease) You'd be able to fit a tanktop, shirt and sweatshirt underneath your cph!

I finished mine with some minor modifications and it turned out great. And Michela, mine has 3 inches of positive ease which gives room for a layer or two under it.

Seems like I'm not allowed to upload images to Craftster but all the details are here:

I very badly want to knit this but I cannot afford a high end yarn to do it. Does anyone recommend some cheap *cough* acrylic yarn that will do right by the pattern? I really like Caron Simply soft and it's affordable. Would it do ok, or do you have any other suggestions? Man, being a SAHM sure does hurt for knitting, lol.

I'm personally kind of anti-acrylic, so I'd advise you to avoid that. But there's always Paton's Classic Wool and Lion Wool. They're relatively inexpensive, you can get them on sale at JoAnn's for $4 a skein. Also you can check ebay and I've heard knitpicks is good for inexpensive, quality yarn.

I knit a project in paton's classic wool that will be reknit into this hoodie, but the next larger size. This time I shall put in buttonholes! And also I'm going to knit it in one piece, and pick up the sleeves (so I'll need to rejigger the pattern for it). Anything but to have to seam it again.

I can say for sure that Knitpicks does have natural fibers for a good price. I am a LYS supporter usually, but when the bank account runs low... it allows more stretch. Also, depending on where you are, Briggs & Little is a good value. $5.oo a 240 meter skein around here, and it comes in great colours. But hey if you ant to try one,a nd acrylic is what will get you to it, then hey as long as it's worsted it should work. Have you ckecked Ravelry?

I will say that if I were to ever knit a sweater out of acrylic, I would use Caron Simply Soft or something like it. The colors! The sheen! I just would worry that it would pill like a mad thing and be way too hot. That's not to say that my CPH I knitted out of Cascade 220 isn't pilling, because it totally does.
