This is also for a gift. I used a pattern by Sirdar and the yarn is James C.Brett - Rio. I love this yarn, it is DK weight but seemed much thicker so I didn't have to worry about the size "going smaller" than I wanted!! I am a tight knitter, so I end up with a smaller than needed if I go by the pattern size, can't help myself, it comes from years of being told, "knit your bands tight" when doing Aran Sweaters!!! I love the way that the bobbles are different colours, this wool is really nice.
