Tahki New Tweed in Chocolate can't remember how many. The pattern is from A Season's Tale - sadly discontinued now. I think i knit this sweater 4-5 years ago. It was one of my first, more complicated ones. Knitting from A Season's Tale, i learned a lot about substituting yarns - and fit. The original pattern called for Rowan Kid Classic, but i used Tahki New Tweed instead. Apparently the Kid Classic has a bit more gift - and yields a softer look. I love this sweater - and the design - but I'm anxious to knit it in the original yarn. Note: This pattern uses a worsted weight yarn, many yarns will work well like Cascade 220, 1824 Mission Wool, Lamb's Pride Worsted, Lanaloft Worsted etc.
