Substitute Alpachino Merino with any other category #5, bulky-weight yarn that matches gauge. One of the reasons this yarn works so well in this sweater without feeling too heavy or dense is because it’s composed of two slinky fibers—Merino wool and baby alpaca—that are gently twisted to create a fluffy, airy yarn.
Hook: Size U.S. K/10½ (6.5 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge
Notions: Tapestry needle, several locking stitch markers
