Quick and easy project with pretty nice results :) One thing that is annoying though is the hood. I followed the pattern and it came out WAY too deep. If I was going to do it over I also would add some short rows at the front neck to add some height to the front of the hood so it doesn’t pull down when you wear it. Not sure what I could have done to make it not so deep though.

I anticipate wearing this a lot this fall, even though I know the Polar is going to pill like mad and shed all over the place.
