Nicely written pattern Review by Roberta

This pattern was clear, easy to follow, and knit up beautifully. Nothing was unclear or incorrect, and the finished sweater is lovely.

Other comments on the size are correct- there isn't a lot of ease in this sweater, and it's just barely long enough on me. I knit the size 40 and have a 37" bust, and it's snug but not too small. If I knit it again (and I would- again, beautiful pattern), I'd add 2 inches to the length and go up a needle size to make a slightly looser knit.

Central Park Hoodie Review by Jessica Marini

First, the process of buying and receiving the PDF from Interweave was easy and wonderful! So that gets 5 stars for sure :). The actual pattern itself is a nice pattern, however I think that it might need more pictures to completely show the fit of the sweater as written and maybe more of a description of fit. From the photograph of the girl in the green version, you can see that it has a feminine fitted look to it--however with the way the model is posed, it is difficult to see where the fronts fall when arms are down and how long it really is. I know I made mine longer and picked a larger size so that it would close nicely, but I only did this after reading countless reviews about this product.

Beautiful and easy to read Review by Jennifer Wright

Pattern is easy to read and knits up beautifully. What I found is that it is "small"/tight compared to what I normally consider in a cardigan. I reknit the sleeves (small vs medium) as they were very tight as well as added more stitches on the front band to compensate for the small front panels. I did do a swatch before knitting, so know that my tension is correct. So if you dont want a "tight" sweater, go up a size.
