(Less) Holey Equinox

I am almost finished knitting the Equinox top. It is a very well written pattern and very easy to follow. The only modification I made was twisting the purl stitches after the YO rows (K*, YO, P1, P3tog, P1, YO), starting at round 9 for 10 inches after the front/back/sleeve separation. I knit the sleeves and bottom of the body as written (purling the YOs from the previous row).

So instead of:

(K*, YO, P1, P3tog, P1, YO) repeat around
Next 3 rows: (K*, P5) repeat around

I did the following:

(K*, YO, P1, P3tog, P1, YO) repeat around
Next row: (K*, Ptbl, P3, Ptbl)
Next 2 rows: (K*, P5) repeat around

This made the fabric a little tighter.
