Inspired by the finely knit close-fitting cardigans of the late 1950s, Norah Gaughan has designed this little pink sweater with delicate details. The three-quarter sleeves, short body length, ultra-soft yarn, scalloped cable edge, and tiny pearl buttons are proof that the feminine appeal of mid-century runway fashion is still in vogue today.
Finished Size: 34 (38, 42, 46, 50)" (86.5 [96.5, 106.5, 117, 127] cm) bust/chest circumference, buttoned. Sweater shown measures 34" (86.5 cm).
Yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca and Silk (50% alpaca, 50% silk; 146 yd [134 m]/50 g): #i33 blush (pale pink), 8 (9, 10, 11, 12) skeins.
Yarn weight: #3 - Light
Gauge: 24 sts and 36 rows
Needles: Body and sleeves: Size 3 (3.25 mm): straight. Ribbing: Size 1 (2.25 mm): straight. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
