I used an Angora to make the frill. Appx. 55 yards of DK/lightweight angora worked on the U.S. size needle 5. The men’s version is minus the frill. The angora I used was Valerie di Roma. I don’t believe it’s made any longer. You can use just about anything you want for your frill. It’s fun and it’s an easy knit. Go wild!
The pattern is found in my and Lisa Souza’s book: 10 Secrets of the LaidBack Knitters
