This time I used the actual yarn called for in the pattern, Lorna's Laces Lion & Lamb. In my opinion, there is no substitute! Spend the cash and enjoy this pattern the way it was originally designed. Soft, airy, drapey, comfy, easy, lovely. I had 3 skeins in Bittersweet, and I had to drop out one of the middle sections to make sure I had enough yarn. I believe the pattern has since been amended. If you want to make this really FULL-SIZE, buy 4 skeins.
