I love the feel and colors of the yarn, but I’m not sure about the pattern – I thought it would come out deeper (it seems a little small), although the length is good.  In the pattern photos, it looks like it would come halfway down my back – I’m not sure why mine came out so much shorter width-wise, since I followed the instructions with mods and this yarn is definitely worsted weight.

I’m also not as crazy about how the accent yarn looks as a wide ribbed border as I thought I would be.  I was looking for the perfect way to combine these two beautiful corresponding yarns, and somehow this looked different in my mind :)
