Warning this pattern is highly addictive! I have a rather large stahs that I've been working my way through for a few years now. I had quite a few super saver yarns and some of the stripes, so I've been matching them up and making these since December, I've made 11 and haven't been able to keep one for myself yet! It also works really well with 2 solid colours instead of a solid and a striping yarn.
