1  Need opinions on the results I got from this pattern in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by sherrrry561 on: December 06, 2010 08:47:53 AM
I made a neckwarmer using this pattern:  http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=4078&cps=21191

I did not use the suggested yarn.  I used Patons Rumor yarn because it's what I had and was able to get the same gauge.  The pattern states that the finished dimensions should be 7 inches X 24 inches.    I made it 26 inches because when I tried it on 24 inches was too short.  I did get the 7 inches on the width.   Still it looks smaller, not as full,  to me than the photo with the pattern.   

Should I block or 'kill' this?  Would that help open up the pattern a bit?   It is 84% acrylic/15% alpaca/1% polyester.  If I 'kill' it what will that do since it has alpaca in it?  Maybe I should just wash and dry it and see what happens.

Here's a photos of it.  I have not yet added the buttons:
