What materials did you use? Cascade 220 Sport; US-4 circular needles. Had to use 2 other brands to get enough blues. Jamison Spinthrift in China Blue & Berlini Merino Xtra in Cashmere Blue for the "X" in the main photo. I couldn't make row gauge , but Im not going to worry about it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the entire course all the way through first before jumping in to knit. As you watch it that first time, click on notes as you watch to type in a short identifying heading so you'll know what to go over more. Swatching for stitch size is essential to success for your correct vest size.
