The pattern was written after completing the hat. SO let me know if you come across any problems.

You can find the pattern for sweater in the link below:

I have made few modifications for the pattern as follows:

Hook Size : I 
Yarn : Worsted Weight

Starting chain 48

Just before working on armholes

I made 9 lace rows instead of 12 and next 3 rows I did sc around.
I did not do the sleeves now. I might  do it later stage if required.


Arm holes added and working on lace rows


Completed sweater with buttons added.
