Here's a little cardigan I knit for my niece Esmé. The pattern is from a vintage 1968 book (the same one I used for this sweater & hat). The yarn is wonderful alpaca from Nordic Mart (on sale right now!). This was my third sweater and I think it turned out pretty well, though I can see room for improvement, so I better keep practicing! The openwork stripes add a nice bit of prettiness to an otherwise plain sweater and I like how the front button bands are folded over. It seems a tad short and wide, but we'll see come spring!
