Personal note about the yarn: it is super soft and almost feels like silk. This should have been my first clue that this was going to be difficult to work with. This yarn slides around and off the hook so much that it exhausted my hands and patience. I would recommend working with a bamboo hook. The yarn also splits easily and it does get slightly fuzzy as you work with it. When sewing in some of the ends I had to use fabric glue.
