loisgriffinwannabe, the yarn she used to knit hers was "mysterious korean wool," so she doesn't list a brand.  However, she says that it is DK Merino wool, with about 115-125 yards per ball, and you need 5 balls of the main color and 5 of the contrast for your size.

Thanks so much! I am in your debt. Emms

Lois- you'll need five balls of each colour, plus 50g of sticky wool for the steeking.
I ordered six balls of each, just in case... being a busty gal myself, I hate having to re-order yarn.
the yarn is any dk weight merino  NOT SUPERWASH... it needs to be able to felt a little bit.
can't wait to see what you order!

I'd quite like to give this a try, but I'm a bit of a novice. I'd like to do it plain rather than the argyle, so that might make it a bit easier!

I've never knitted a jumper before - how hard do you all think this will be?

Lau, the only thing that I think would be hard about this is the steeking... that means you actually have to CUT (ACK!) your work... otherwise it would be fairly simple... I don't know if you'd want to buy the pattern if you're not going to do the argyle though... it's a straightforward fair isle pattern, so you could maybe give it a try!

You could try SaunShine's Jem Collections. I bought the pattern because it was kind of like Eunny's but was less intimidating. Plus it's a two for one deal. Can't beat that. Here's the link. http://saunshine.blogspot.com/2006/01/jems-collection.html

Ooh, thanks for the answers! In the end I did buy Eunny's pattern (it's excellent, by the way) because I thought at some point I'd like to try it. Those other patterns look great too.

In the meantime, I think I'm going to use it as inspriation to knit a plain tank top (vest) in and then attach the cuffs invsibly instead of steeking. I bught some cheap wool, and I'm just going to give it a shot. I have a feeling I'm one of those people who doesn't follow patterns, so look out for my "OMG! What have I knitted" thread in the future.  Grin

Anyway, thanks for your help. I wont be doing the knitalong, as the only similarity is that it's a tank top! But I'll be very interested to see what you all produce, and I'll definitely refer to the thread when I knit my own after I have conquered the tank top.  Smiley

I started this vest last Friday for the olympics- I'm around row 50 in the first chart:



I'm really pleased with how quickly the pattern reads in my knitting- I've been flying with it- just need to pay attention to the shaping. 

More info on my blog.  Cheesy
