I have a favorite wrap t-shirt that I copied to make this sweater, adding bell sleeves and bottom edging. I used a size 17 needle for the first 4 rows of the bottom, and 8 rows of the sleeves, and switched to a size 13 to knit the body of the piece. The yarn is GGH Savanah alpaca blend. I was under a deadline to finish it so I could return all the extra yarn I bought… I bought 20 skeins and only needed 10 and this yarn wasn’t cheap. I’ve got a store credit at The Yarn Co in NYC which I plan to use when I visit my cousin in June.
