I am looking at the Berroco Ultra Alpaca Wool, but the recommended gauge was 5 sts = 1" on US 8, that seemed too low for what was recommended for sizing the sweater. What guage did you knit at and with what needle size? Did you have to do any modifications to the pattern?
The trouble with me is, I forget everything after I finished a project. I think I used the recommended size needles (US 8), and didn't changed anything to the pattern. The size of the sweater is finished at 36".
How did you do the vertical ribbing for the button band?
Oops, I meant to answer you here. But please the comment above.
