I love this pattern, but it is a yarn hog. I originally wanted to make it in all ivory, but soon realized I wouldn't have nearly enough yarn. I added a section of brown and rust in the middle instead, with ivory panels. I think, if I did it all over again, I would order more of the ivory yarn, but I still love it. The Lind pattern is very intuitive, once you get the hang of it, but it is time consuming.
