How many inches too big is it? Adjustments on Aran sweaters are done at the seams where there is usually moss stitch. Measure some of the pattern designs and eliminate a large one or use less stitches in the moss stitch under the arms. You might try knitting tighter or use smaller needles or you used a thicker yarn than called for, they all make a sweater too big. I know from experience all of these happen. Been there done that.
My first thought is you used yarn that was too heavy, make a swatch and check your gauge. Read the label of the yarn you used where it tells you the stitches per inch and rows, 10 cm equals 4 inches, then check the gauge as listed in the pattern, they should match.
