Nice to knit, but quite tight, not very stretchy (due to the pattern) and a bit heavy.
If I’d ever knit it again, I would modify welts and cuffs because they stretch more than the rest of the pattern. Using less purl stitches between the knit stitches should do the trick.
The neck needed some tweaking, too because I wanted to keep the cable patterning correct. It is necessary to cable front and back on different rows to achieve this.
