As the stitch used is garter stitch, this yarn stretches quite a bit. Am trying to make them smaller to accommodate the stretch. The yarn catches easily and splits into a fine almost unbreakable filament whilst in use and is very annoying. The warmth of this yarn, though, makes all these little niggles worth while. The colours are breath-taking ! I`ve used 7 different colours , and can`t stop trying a new one every time. Giving these neck-warmers away to family and friends.
