I have started this hoodie two month ago and finished within two weeks. However I only blocked it and put in the zipper last weekend. I didn't alter anything from the pattern ,the only thing that missing is the tree pattern on the hoodie cos my hubby said it gives him a creep with the name apocalypse tree. I do think the hoodie looks kinda boring without the tree, that's why I add on the pom-pom. I like the figure -8 cast on the hoodie even it took me three tries and error. The shaping on the waist are perfect and I love the thumb hole on the end of the sleeve (like you have a fingerless gloves !!). The yarn that I used on this hoodie are discontinue Rowan Polar, the yarn are really soft with a bit mohair especially after it wash but is really comfortable on the skin. The hardest part for me is to sewing on the zipper since is my first attempt with zipper.
