the Bernat yarn website here. I used two strands of Bernat Softee Chunky in Rouge held together throughout. I was amazed at how quickly this sweater worked up, and the yarn is incredibly soft. I'll definitely be making this pattern again, maybe for myself this time. :o)
One note: Melinda says she loves this sweater but it is VERY warm, so you may want to save it for those really cold winter days.
