I made this for my sister for Christmas. The pattern was great. Easy to follow. The choice of yarn was fantastic as it was so bulky but boy did I have a time trying to crochet with it. I might be too much of a beginner to work with such complicated yarn. At least the pattern was simple enough to follow that I didn’t as much trouble as I might have. It turned out beautiful and so soft and warm. I’m sure my sister will love it!
