I chose the pattern for this hand knit sweater coat in 2014, long before I settled on my current style preference for long sleek vertical lines. In 2014, I managed to complete the font and back sections before putting it aside while to help DS who started to fail HS due to many absences from an illness.
DS difficulties lasted 2 years and I completely forgot about this project Flash! Flash forward to 2021 when I found it on the high shelf of my closet in a box. It needed sleeves, collar and a button placket. Rather than start a new project, I decided to finish this one first. I might have preferred a wider button placket to give more vertical emphasis but I did not have enough yarn.

Thinking of the color challenge. I quickly tried it on with a hat and some shoes in a similar color. I don't love the monochrome look....and would love suggestions for how to style it...
