Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I could not say so, not really. Very little resemblance there.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They seemed...a bit lacking in sense and instructed you to do a bit more work that was necessary. It would be a very easy item to put together, if the directions were simplified so I left them and went off on my own.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the picture on the package the best. That is pretty much the nicest thing I can find to say about the experience.
Fabric Used:
A grey fleece with some stretch.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The thing that made the least about of sense to me was the instruction to cut the neck band in two pieces, why not on the fold? I cut on the fold, not wanting any additional seams.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
No, and no.
Conclusion:
Disappointing.

I've been wondering about this pattern. I love your cardigan and often, I just go my own way when sewing anyway.
