Here’s my second Ketch before blocking. It’s made of KnitPicks Wool of the Andes Sport weight. It’s soft and wooly and fluffy. The collar and button band aren’t right, though. I might have to redo it, as I did for the first.

Here it is blocked. I think I’m going to like it.


Here are the vintage buttons I bought for this sweater. I think they may be too small. I don’t have lots of purple buttons, as you can imagine.

I have some rather showy iridescent ones with dragonflies. They seem like a better size, but they may just be too fancy for the project.
