Notes

This was a great easy knit. The only changes I made to the pattern was that I knitted the garment on a circular needle to knit the body in the round (to avoid seaming!). I also cast on with four less stitches to make up for the seaming stitches that were not required. I had only a small amount of yarn left of the Alpaca Silk. 3 skeins of each yarn was only just enough in my case, if you intend on making the body any longer than what the pattern suggests it might be worthwhile to get a fourth skein of each.
