Yarn: Jaeger Extra Fine Merino DK (sadly discontinued) Needles: US 5 Lantern Moon rosewood straights
DK-weight is the way to go with this pattern. The pattern's yarn specifications are slightly cryptic, because Creativeyarn is Italian and yarn is categorized differently there. The mesh pattern is slightly looser than the ribbing. The ribbing itself is slightly tight on my arms, so I would go up one needle size for the arm ribbing, then stick with the smaller needles for the lace pattern and hand ribbing. I'm a big fan of this yarn; it's too bad that it has been discontinued. It's very springy and soft.
