This pattern is very well written and easy to follow. It is absolutely Not for the faint of heart. I've done colorwork before, but this was challenging. You must pay attention (not relaxing) to colors and tension. Fortunately, most of my gaffes improved with blocking, and some duplicate stitch. I used Pallette rather than the recommended yarn because I live in a warm climate. It still came out large enough to be a wrap. I backed it with a raw silk duipioni so it would not slide off so easily. I recommend this pattern for those knitters who appreciate a challenge.

I haven't done it yet either but pleased to have read the other two reviews. I was about to tackle it on a long plane trip. I like a challenge but it seems like it is a stretch too far. I will give it a trial run first ... Also upset about the wool substitution. The bright blue, which is standout in the photo, has not been replaced with a like colour.

So disappointed to read the review. I was excited when I saw the pattern. I've done complicated patterns but as this is the only review I'll pass. I hope someone will post when they finish this beautiful pattern.

I've done other color work, but this shawl/wrap is perplexing. It has 5-6 pages of colored charts that go ACROSS each row on each page. So that means you are flipping pages on each line and have so many bobbins hanging, keeping your place is a nightmare. Not for the faint of heart. I've put mine away for now. It's just too complicated to work. (Not to mention the additional extra embroidered stitches when it's not worth swapping colors for one stitch. ) Very disappointed. There must be an easier way to do this. Maybe do each page and graft them?
