Made for: My Dear Other Half
In: Rowan Pure Wool Aran
Pattern: Jaques Cousteau by Typy
Modifications: Yes. I used Aran instead of the recommended DK, so I adjusted the number of stitches down to 100, and then scaled the other sections accordingly.
Rating: I liked knitting this, it was quick too. The only problem I have is with the propensity of the top to point due to decreasing every row. But when worn it looks fine.
