Sleeves are DEFINITELY too long. :\ Otherwise, love this pattern!
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.
Renamed because I think it looks like the Pokémon.

In retrospect, with the color changing I should’ve added one row of stockinette to the start of each of the grey sections. But it still looks good, and Justin seemed to like it!

Making with mystery (probably worsted weight?) yarn from Thao.

So I got to the end of the yarn, and tbqh it’s not really scarf-length, although it looks amazing!
I’m going to try to graft the live end onto the cast on end…

Finally grafted live edge together with cast-on edge with a sort of modified Kitchener stitch. Looks pretty good!
