This is a Lion Brand pattern I've used before. I love it. It's such a classic look, though the single button is a nice update, and more practical for my girls really. And, it calls for a worsted weight yarn, which means is project that goes rather quickly. That makes me happy.
The yarn is Knit Picks Shine Worsted in Sailor. Great color! I was a bit apprehensive about using a yarn with Modal but it worked up nicely. We'll see how it wears. Scarlett thinks it wears just fine, of course! I think it's a gorgeous color with her dark brown eyes.
I also love the button I found. A new (to me) line, Dritz "Belle Buttons." JoAnn carried a bunch that were more than the ordinary fare. This one is a great variegated blue (Item #BB370).
To be honest, I was hoping to have this sweater finished for Scarlett to wear last Fall, but it didn't make it to the top of the list, and she had plenty to wear. Spring is just as good I think. I'm going to make her a skirt to wear with it. And I have fabric for a coordinating Fall skirt as well. The sweater is roomy enough I'm hoping it will fit for a few seasons.
