I am using patons divine.  It has a pretty strong halo from the mohair, but it looks pretty good so far.  I knit pretty tightly, so my one strand of divine gave me a very similar gauge to the double stranded alpaca.  I used size 6 (4mm) needles, and I am planning on finishing the ribbing with the 32" size 6 circulars. 

Is there a reason that some people moved up in size when they got to the point of picking up stitches around the edge?  If you changed needle sizes, did it change the number of stitches you picked up / the number of ribs you had on the border?

Thanks!

I used the size 7 because I didn't have a size 6 circular in the right length and didn't feel like buying them.  I have notice a difference yet.

I would like to know how did everyone do the increase one purl on the ruffle?

I used a size 7.5 on the ribbing and middle because i didn't have the right size either.
jane dough - the number of stiches i picked up didn't depend on the needle size since i picked up every available stich there was...and since i used double strand i counted each single stich that had 2 strands as 2 seperate stiches.

shawnee - when it came to increasing i increased using hte extra strand that crossed between 2 purl stiches since it left less of a gap than the way the instructions said to do it - you can see the holes in my ribbing in my pic - every so often i would try their way again and was too frustrated withit to go back and fix it.

hope this makes sense and helps you guys

Thanks ckml that definitely helps, because I was having the same problem using their instructions.

Oof. I just finished picking up stitches and the two initial rows of the border. The tedium and hand-cramping!

I finished mine a few days ago, but I haven't blocked it or added (or found, really) a button (I did button + buttonhole instead of the flower pin thing). Pictures soon!

I finally finished mine yesterday and it't blocking right now.  I plan to knit the flower using Wool-ease thick and quick.  I'll post pics when it's dry.

Well, here is mine.  It doesn't seem to lay just right, but I'm hoping my sister will like it.




I also finished this one which is from the same drops catalog for my other sister:
