Yarn: SWTC Bamboo, 2 skeins Bougainvillea
Size: 65" by 8"
So I altered the altered pattern ... I did 16 straight sections instead of the 8 called for in the pattern. As written, it's just too darn short. I probably could've gotten another repeat out of the yarn I had left, but it was long enough for my purposes.
The yarn is really drapey, heavy, and lovely. It's not silky soft, but it's nice. There was some color pooling along the edge; I think the double-stranding helped to mitigate that. The stitch definition is really nice.
I've already ordered some Knitpicks Andean Silk to make the full-size version. ;-) I see why people were so addicted to making these!
