  • Hot water and dry it, if still too big, then hot water again and hot dry, just check it occasionally, so it doesn't get messed up.

  • Give it a couple of cycles. Beyond that, you're on the right track. Good luck!

  • most sweatshirts are not 100% cotton so it may never shrink. You can try washing on hot with a hot dryer.
