Notes

This was a very fun and satisfying test knit. I ended up giving this one to my lovely model, but do plan on making another for me.

The well-pattern was very easy to knit and looks just lovely in a tweed yarn.

I did make some mods for a smaller fit: This is knit top-down and I made fewer increases before separating for the sleeves. I also added fewer stitches at this time and ended up knitting with 144 stitches instead of 154 for my size. This made the overall size approximately 2 inches smaller in the width. It was still roomy enough to fit over a sweater.
