I used Jenna Adorno's "Tempting" pattern.
Red Heart worsted weight acrylic-about a skein and a half. The color is called "Country Rose".

I think if I make another one, I'd use a lighter-weight yarn, probably a cotton.

Oh that came out wonderful! I have the same sweater in line to try next thing in almost the same color! I hope mine looks as well as yours.

Did you run into any trouble I might like to know about ahead of time?

It was time-consuming, but just as easy as it looked. The most complicated thing I had made previously was a sock. This sweater took me almost a month(did I mention I have three little kids?). The hardest part was joining the sleeves to the main body of the sweater. And once I figured that part out, it wasn't long before I finished it. Good luck, knit2btied, on yours!

Thanks, Ilove, I can't wait to cast on and get started. A month doesn't seem too bad for a first sweater! Luckily you'll have it to wear as the weather begins to change. Just in time, huh?
