  1. I love this!  The versatility if fabulous.  The only change I would have made was to take the picture using a wide black belt with sil- ver buckle instead of narrow brown belt.  I have started this and already three people are wondering if I am making it for them… I was actually thinking about making it for me (oh well, next one). 🙂

     

    Great pattern – clear charts.  Love it!!!!!

  2. This is beautiful! I’m thinking I will try to make it (3 bullets!). Am looking at substitute yarns to bring the price down — Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine? Ella Rae Lace Merino? Cascade’s new Fingering?

  3. Will you please verify that a fingering weight yarn is used?  The magazine uses the “3” symbol and that means sport weight.  I realize that this is probably a fingering weight since the yarn you used was fingering – however before I purchase 3000+ yards I want to be sure.

     

    By the way – your design is Lovely, and makes it easier to be proud of my crochet ability.  I knit too, and SOME knitters tend to look down on crochet… I’m glad the design world is catching up with some awesome patterns.

  5. Yes, I agree, I would like to verify that this yarn is either “3” or “1” or fingering? I would like to substitute as well. It would be helpful if there were a few suggestions of yarns….that would be great! The design is very attractive and looks cozy! Can’t wait to make it. -K

  7. I’ve been swatching yarns, in search of a substitute, and can verify that it is indeed fingering weight.  The “3” on the pattern page is a typo…if you look at the yarn samples in the back of the magazine, it shows a “1”, and the photo is clearly lightweight.  I love this feature in Interweave’s mags…it makes it easier to substitute yarns.

    However, I’m not having much luck.  The flow and drape the photos demonstrate aren’t achieved by just any yarn in the same size.  I’m going to end up buying the Canopy, as I think the bamboo is a necessary component.  Though I got a pretty good result with Regia Silk….
