I just finished the Dream Swatch.  It knit up quickly with some left over Lorna's Laces in the Safari colorway.  Now I know what to do with the other tiny balls of LL's left over from socks!!  (it used hardly any yardage)

I think this is a really neat pattern.  I wonder what it would look like on a larger project -- like a sweater?  Anyway, great job, bigang100!  Grin

Yours all look SO great!  Mine curls like crazy and it's too short to really use for much.  I have a feeling it will be one of those things that just sits in my closet.   Embarrassed

I steam ironed mine (took a damp face cloth that I put on top and ironed it).  I was thinking of making one that was just the width of your head and sew it together.  Is yours long enough for that?  Maybe it would make a cute headband.

diamere- here is the link to the original post with more examples and a link to the pattern. I would really recommend using a yarn that doesn't have too much elasticity because the edges of this really want to curl! Good luck and be sure to ask if you have any more questions Cheesy
