Comments: This is a swatch for an upcoming sweater project - the colour is discontinued, so I got the yarn for half-price.  The label suggests a 4.5mm, but I wanted to see the drape with a 5mm.  I like the yarn on the 5, but I think I want a little more structure to the fabric, so I'll go with the 4.5mm.  The ribbing here is on the same needle... I think I'll do what's recommended and do the real ribbing on a 3.5mm.
