I love the antique look of the hooks;
it fits with the lacy pattern of the sweater.
This was quite a project! I got all done and started blocking it, and realized one sleeve was shorter than the other. I took it out completely and redid it. I was glad I had because the sweater came out so pretty. I followed the pattern exactly, but if I ever did this one again, I would change a few details.
I made it out of Naturally Caron Country yarn in Spruce Color. It is 75% acrylic, 25% merino, the only kind of wool I can handle well. It's super soft, and can be machine washed and dried on gentle cycle, according to the label. I haven't really tried it yet.
