This took about 4 hours to make with the color changes. It was fun and mindless though, and I love the end result. This would make a great gift. I used these two colors because it was the only two neutral colors I had on hand in a bulky yarn, and I didn’t have enough of either one to make it solid.
My only suggestion is that you be sure and place your starting chain around your neck and make it long enough for that soft drapey effect. Most people need to make their starting chain longer than the pattern calls for. It looks stupid when it’s not big enough. If you don’t believe me, just go to the Ravelry page and look through the 305 projects. I added 20 chains to mine, and it could have been even a little longer. Yes, I have a big head apparently. You’ll see on the pattern and Ravelry page how you can pull it up over your head to block the wind or whatever.
I used a size N hook and 1 skein of Lion Brand Jiffy in Silver Heather and 1 1/2 skeins of Bernat Softee Chunky in Topaz. I much prefer the Bernat. The Jiffy is not near as soft.
