Finally, another finished knit! It seems like too long since my last. I hope you'll agree that it was worth the wait--I think this might be my best work yet!
Yesterknits. I used a bright yellow fingering (4-ply) cotton yarn--Plymouth Italy Baby--which I purchased for cheap on ebay. It is very soft, has good stitch definition, and was generally nice to work with. I did my best impression of the 60s girl in the pattern photos. [Ravelry link to pattern]
I'm in love with the cravat and the puffy collar. I think the lace pattern came out very nice as well. There's something a bit old-fashioned about it, but I think it looks stylish with the shape of the sweater. I hope this will inspire more of you to knit from cute vintage patterns!
