sailor sweater

A nautical style striped sweater knit using this pattern.
I made mine in natural alpaca and Quince and Co. Chickadee in the color Peacoat.

I sized up my sweater using heavier yarn then the pattern calls for and it came out about a 2-3T.

I have been making an effort to use only yarn I have for my projects but, I ran out of the alpaca right before the button band and sleeves so I had to order some. Unfortunately, I was not able to get the same exact yarn as it had been purchased a couple of years before on a day trip so I tried to match it as best as I could online. It's a bit different but, I think it works out okay in the end. The blue buttons are vintage ones.

I enjoyed knitting this pattern and the clever construction.
