I liked the feedback from the other knitters to use a nice cotton yarn. I think I am going to try to make it up in Cotton fair. They have some wonderful colors and the sweater would drape very nicely. I can't wait to work this pattern up. I think it is very cute. It would be perfect for a cool spring or even a summer evening to keep the coolness off your arms.

I also substituted a 100% cotton for the hemp -- living so far from a place that specializes in yarns has its definite limitations. The yarn had the same weight and gauge and knit up well. As I have a serious reaction to the sun, I knit the sleeves to wrist length. As I was not sure how to change the neck line, I plan to wear it with a lace scarf or cowl for further sun protection

I substituted 100% cotton Sugar & Cream yarn for the outrageously expensive hemp yarn. It is the same weight/stitches per inch, drapes well, and a huge cone is about $8 at Walmart. I lengthened the sleeves and eliminated the bell effect, preferring a 3/4 length with a bit of ribbing rather than the flutter effect. Also, I didn't care for the boxy neck opening, and closed it in a bit with a rolled collar. Instead of just a few added rows, I reverse stockingette knit about 15 rows, which curls nicely and keeps my bra straps from showing.
