Someone had one on Raverly that was done in Lion Brand Cotton Ease.  It looked great (plus it's cheap and machine washable).  I actually just did a baby sweater for a shower gift in that yarn, and was surprised with how nice it is now (I'm normally a bit of a yarn snob...but then again cotton is cotton...and Patons and Lion Brand and some of these other companies are really putting out some nicer stuff in the past few years).

There's a finished one posted here on craftster.  She didn't say what yarn she used though.  I wanted to dye my own so that it would be a semi-solid, but I'm not sure it's the type of sweater I want to wear in a wool...  Still undecided.   Undecided

I want to do this sweater next. Is anyone omitting the eyelet increase row or substituting with a different increase? I am not so sure I like the yarn overs. Thanks. Cheesy

You could either kfb or M1 and KTBL to twist the stitch...you won't get the holes as you would for a YO with either of those.

And yes, in the Rav KAL, some people are leaving out the eyelets completely.

I started knitting it about 2 weeks ago.  I'm using Filatura Lanarota Chaco worsted weight in a lovely yellow color.  It's knitting up great!  I just finished the yoke and have started the lace!  I really like the yo increases because they sort of lead right into the lace.
