This was my first ever sweater--I ended up using a cotton blend (DB cotton silk aran) since I'm in a warm climate. It is very stretchy, so I'd err on the smaller side size-wise. Watch your gauge too--it does call for aran weight, and merino style is dk, I believe. Swish sounds good though!

I love mine, I always get compliments when I wear it!
