Looking for other tpes of yarn to use for this pattern
I am going to make this soon

http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/bignet_stole.html

I am having trouble finding this specific yarn at my lys. Is there some other type of yarn that I can substitute that would work just as well ad be just as pretty?

ugh...i love the big net stole too and i can't find big net anywhere but on the net. did you try online?

the problem with going with a different type of yarn for this one is that you have to find something that will be as thick as the big net when it is knitted, and i was just concerned that i wouldn't find anything that i thought was knit up as pretty. i hope someone has some good suggestions, otherwise i would google for an online store.

Thanks you two! I just this pattern minus the fringe in the body of the shawl. I wonder what the ribbon yarn feels like on your skin? I wanted to buy the ribbon from the LYS (instant gratification) But I guess I will pick something online.

Thanks.
