How exciting! I’ve always wanted to try the gorgeous Bernat Alpaca yarn, and this rich “Aqua” color has captured my heart.
I’ve chosen to make the lovely “Leaf Pullover” from the All Alpaca pattern book #530165. Luckily, I was able to get gauge with just one swatch, using the suggested needle size. Remarkable!
Before I started knitting the actual pattern, I looked online to see if there were any corrections for the pattern. I went to the Bernat website, and clicked “Pattern Book Corrections” under the “Our Patterns” link. Next, I chose the “All Alpaca” book, then the “Leaf Pullover” pattern. There were a few corrections there for the smaller sizes. I decided to write in the corrections in my booklet, just in case I decide to make a smaller size later. To my surprise, the corrections were not necessary! Bernat had already printed the corrected pattern in the booklet. GO BERNAT!!!
Since my gauge swatch was accurate, and my pattern book was too, I decided to get started knitting. After just one short session, I am halfway through the leaf pattern at the neckline. This is gonna go quickly!
