Green Gable Hoodie - part 2

Chart B



Chart A





I finally finished it! It's more snug than probably the original pattern called for, but I made an inbetween size. I think that was an issue a lot of people had, it was either too big or too small. So mine is about a 32" with some negative ease....because it's a sweater, not a potato sack!
