Barbara W. knit this Nora Gaughan sweater called Quarzo...in Book #7. She used Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light.
Notes from her project:
Pattern called for 8 skeins (I took 9) I only used 7. The last skein I rolled and then divided in half. I would recommend purchasing required number of skeins. The knitter can then make their own decision on whether they will need the last skein or not at the end.
Pattern calls for Size11 circular in 16" and 29". I had a pair of 11-24" and they worked just fine for the entire pattern. I also used the Size 11 dpn for the sleeves and Size 8 (pattern calls for circular, I used dpns) for the collar. Pattern, as written, does not say the size 9's are used for the collar.
Sweater does tend to roll at the bottom when knitting. When I blocked it came out and sweater lays flat.
The decreases for the raglan sleeve as written are very confusing. They are worked simultaneously. I suggest writing them out instead of tryig to follow the pattern.
Even after all the confusion with the sleeves, this was a very easy, very quick knit. I began Thursday, August 26th and completed on Sunday, September. 5th.
