I love this pattern but wanted a chunky version. So I changed the gauge and played with the proportions to make it wearable at a bulkier weight — e.g., cuffs on the sleeves, a shorter body. And I love how it turned out — it’s a sweater I’ll wear constantly.

Complete details of all the mods I made are on the blog!

(If anyone has thoughts on the way I paced the decreases, as seen in that little matrix, I’d welcome it!)
