I love this pattern! It is coming along swimmingly. The chart is easy to read and the pattern is easy to follow. Best of all, it looks fantastic.
I used size 6 needles on the k2p2 ribbing and then switched to size 7 for the rest. The yarn is Red Heart Soft. The soft halo obscures the stitches a bit but not too much. I've almost run out of yarn so I need to decide if I'm going to switch to another colour or buy another ball of yarn.
