Then I made one for Norah's sister, Sarah, with the same yarn and buttons.
I used the same mods I had for Sarah's sweater but with different yarn and buttons and it worked out great.
Then I decided to make one for Emily in an adult size.
For this one I held the worsted acrylic yarn double and knitted with a size 13 needle. The yoke I knitted as written. For the body I knitted only 10 pattern repeats for two reasons. First, I was running out of yarn that I was using for the body and second, I would have had to add enough pattern repeats so the next button hole looked right. I have 5 button holes. The last row of the lace pattern I decreased 10% then I knitted 4 ridges for a garter cuff in the yoke colored yarn and BO. Then for the sleeves I knitted in the round with 14 pattern repeats. The last row of the lace pattern I decreased 10% then I knitted 4 ridges for a garter cuff and BO.
