I absolutely LOVE this one. I made the longer, two skein version so I could wrap it around my neck several times and still have ends to play with. But the shorter one skein version would still be lovely. The pattern has directions for both.
Small size can be completed in just a couple evenings by the fire; the longer version over a weekend - easy...
Working on size 8 needles gives it an extra lacy and open feel that prevents beads from winding up on the wrong side of the piece. It sets off the sparkle to perfection.
