This is a sweater I started as soon as we got to our vacation resort. Our room wasn't ready for us (we were early) and so I sat by the pool in the nice warm weather, which I truly enjoyed and started this sweater. I always keep some project handy to work on if I have some time. I finished it the day before we came home except for the buttons which I put quickly on when I knew Karen was coming to my house and would be able to model it.
I used an acrylic yarn that is a DK weight. The gauge for the sweater is more for a sport weight yarn, so the sweater knitted up tight and thick. I do like the eyelet pattern.
This pattern is an old one I bought in the 80's, a Peter Pan pattern. They are very sweet ones that I've enjoyed knitting. In the picture below you can see some eyelet also done on the sleeves.
