Oh! Great gift idea. I'm keeping this in my baby pattern arsenal! Thanks so much for the pattern Smiley

Knitpicks pulled the pattern because there were a LOT of errors in it. I have a copy but without pattern corrections I don't trust myself to make it.

#1 rule when subbing yarns, especially vegan yarns. PAY ATTENTION to what the fiber is, not just gauge. Different fibers drape WAY differently. If you sub cotton or bamboo for wool in a pattern, you will get a more drapey garment, that doesn't always work out.

I'm not really a vegan, but I'm highly allergic to wool and lanolin so I sub all the time. I've found a lot of acrylic blends to be good for sweaters. There are some nice acrylics, really. Calmer is so nice (it has elasticity to it, but is expensive), but even Simply Soft is a great craft store find. I'm currently making a sweater out of Berrocco Comfort and it is really nice, and acrylic/nylon, and I have some Rowan Cotton Rope lined up for a cardigan.

PS, I just knit a scarf out of Maizy, a corn yarn, and it is really really nice yarn! If you have any questions, just hollah!

I did it on 16" circs and had no issues. Did I ever post my photo?

I finished too. I was lazy and didn't want to do the sleeves for the longest time.

Yep, it is the simply soft shadows. It takes more than 1 skein for the "normal" size, just an fyi if you use this yarn.

I'm stuck on the darn ribbing. My gauge is so tight for that it hurts my hands. Looks pretty though. Ugh.

I'm planning on making this next week, or in October. I'm allergic to wool, so I opted for acrylic since I've learned my lesson by trying to sub 100% cotton or 100% alpaca for large items that can drape too much. I'm using Bernat Black Lites Yarn, and it is annoying that it is going to cost me a lot more than if I could just use the damn wool! I had to order it online because I couldn't find it at any of the local craft stores for some reason.

I love it. I've been eyeing that pattern, glad to see it turns out well.
