Notes

I just loved this in every way you could love a knitting project. The pattern was clear and simple, the yarn was soft and well-behaved, yet wooly and rustic, and the fit is perfect, but only after I made some pretty major but easy modifications.

The pattern is mean for aran weight yarn and the smallest size is a 36” bust. Neither is that great for me because 1) a pullover in aran weight yarn would be too warm for my California weather, and 2) I wanted this to be fitted with zero ease and a 33” bust. To make these changes I simply switched out the yarn to a lighter weight worsted weight yarn with a smaller gauge and knit the smallest size. It worked! I also added length to the sleeves and body.

Lastly I wanted the neck to be a little less tight so I didn’t do as many decreases and ended up with 8 more stitches.
