The Sweater of the Winter of Our Discontent

This was a “mystery” yarn that was given by a friend who had it given to her. No labels at all and I just guessed it was sport weight by the gauge.

Striping/color blocking was somewhat guesstimate, as was increasing/decreasing, sleeve diameter and length.

I love the fit of the body but right now I’m meh on the hood & collar. It feels like it’s just going to slide off of my shoulders.

Given the fit now and my personal preferences, I’m not doing a button band or buttons. I’m going to pick up a zipper and probably just sew it directly to the edge. (I may need to knit on a very small band to just have enough non-lace to attach the zipper.
