We have been giving this pattern out like mad as people buy us out of this fantastic yarn.
I finally made one out of a ball of blue that I have had in my stash for a while to give as a teacher gift.
It takes between 1.5 to 2 hrs (i was not timing very accurately) and only uses up one ball of this luscious but pricey stuff.
The original pattern calls for US13, but the store sample was knit on US15 to make the yarn go further. I made this one on US17 to try pushing it even further but I don't think that it really made much difference. It should have stopped with the 15's.
This one is cute but the ones that peeps have been making in the new handpainted Misti are somewhat more fun.
I am just happy to have finished this in time and am glad that I have found something quick top make for my SIL who is hard to gift for.
