I chose Beaverslide's Traditional Fisherman's weight, in Alpine Fir. It was either this color or this one. That was my hardest decision. I like the way it's turning out in the Alpine Fir. I'm using Knitpicks needles, US 7. My gauge is 4.25 stitches to the inch. I'm making the size medium and the gauge difference will ensure a good fit on my frame. I would have normally made the size large as I like roomier cardigans.
I also made a 2 inch ribbing instead of the 4. I'm short, and I didn't think the recommended ribbing would look as nice on me.
