What materials did you use? This one is knit with Austerman Peru Alpaca yarn (now discontinued, Im afraid). Its a lovely soft sport weight Alpaca.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used a light sport weight in this version with the same needles as originally required by the pattern and it turned out fine. The fabric has lots of stretch and is quite forgiving. Choose a natural fiber yarn with the kind of properties that will keep you warm such as Alpaca, Angora, Bison, Cashmere, Merino Wool etc. You can order custom handspun yarns at my site http://www.nancyelizabethdesigns.com/product-category/hand-spun/ be sure to order 1 Superfine "fingering" weight
