The yarn is Filati Cervinia Caprice Color
The pattern is from Vogue Knitting Book

worked on #4 needles.
child's size 8.

I have never knit a sweater on small needles with such thin yarn.
I just don't have much patience!
But I was given this yarn and asked to make a sweater with it.
Of course, I had to jump at the challenge!
I can not believe how much I ENJOYED making this sweater!
I love cables. Beautiful yarn. What more can a person ask for!
I was given 2 more colorways of the same yarn and I already have
the pattern for the next one and am eager to get started on it!
