Fairweather Pullover

After running out of yarn halfway down the second sleeve, I’m finally finished with the Fairweather! This was a fun, easy pattern to knit with interesting details, like the very cool shoulder gussets and sleeve shaping.

Unfortunately, I don’t like wearing it all that much! The neckline is really wide on me, so wide that it’s practically off the shoulder. The model wears a button down shirt underneath, which I haven’t tried as I don’t have a shirt that matches (yet). I also just don’t really like front panels on me in general. I knew this going in, but went for it anyway. Despite these dislikes, I’ve been wearing it quite a bit with leggings and boots in our recent stormy weather. It fills a significant hole in my closet, and I need to look out for other longer patterns.

I do have ideas about fixing it. I may try running elastic around the neckband to give it a little more stability and pull it in a little, or I may put it in a warm wash to felt it up a bit. That’s a risky move, but felting worked wonders for my Mountain High sweater. Until then, I’ll just keep on wearing it!
