This is an excellent project for those of us that 1) purchase 1 Skein of wonderful yarn many times, 2) spin 1 skein of many wonderful fibers many times or 3) have skeins of alpaca and/or silk that are too floppy for a hat/mittens/socks. It is an adjustable pattern for weight of yarn and needle size. Do use a larger needle size than you normally use for whatever yarn you choose….it helps with the drape.

I had 3 skeins of close but not identical color, approximately 110-175 yards each, with mixed fibers of merino/alpaca/silk. This project must be blocked to be successful.
