I did a pretty drastic yarn substitution with this project, using two strands of Kenzie together. Because of that, my sweater isn't as light and lofty as the sample-it's still lofty, and not as dense as I feared it might be, but it's definitely a substantial sweater.
I didn't really make any mods to this-I knit the size 48 so I'd get 4-5 inches of positive ease, and I only knit three-quarter sleeves, because I loved the look of the pushed up sleeves in the pattern photos, but I didn't want the bulk of a full sleeve. I also knit the collar a little shorter than called for, because I have a problem with things too close to my neck. I'm absolutely thrilled with how everything came out, and I wouldn't change a thing.
I definitely went with "1970s appliance colors," which are the best colors, in my opinion, and I've already worn my finished sweater quite a bit. I love the deep yoke so much-between this and my xmas sweater, I want deep yoked everything now!
