Comments: The suggested needle size for this yarn is 3.25mm (US 3), but I used the larger size to create a more lacy effect. Comparing the blocked swatches from the smaller and larger needles, however, their effect is the same. The difference is in the unblocked swatches, where the swatch from the smaller needdle is much less lacy. Unblocked, this pattern is very cushy and also quite attractive.
