The yarn called for is Squoosh Fiberarts Rapture-Sport-6-7 sts per inch. Pattern calls for 6.5 sts per inch and I get 5.5 with my sport wt yarn. I'm a bit confused by Sue's comments and am ready to give up on making this top down. I've only successfully made ONE vest top-down; everything else I've frogged.
