I first bought a skein on sale from a knitting store that was closing and made a scarf. It is so popular that I am making 4 more for friends and family that have requested it. It is super easy to work with once you see the video and the color options are terrific. I change the width between 5 - 9 stichesto get slightly different effects and recommend using 1 & 1/3 skeins when using wider widths. I found Jimmy Wool offered the best price and was impressed on how fast they filled my order.
