I've never made one before, because I didn't really like the look of it.
But, after seeing one in the flesh (in the yarn?)
, it looks nice.
And the pattern is SUPER EASY. You only have to tie on the first color change. After that, you just leave the yarns hanging, and pick them up to use them at the appropriate row. It's not like fair-isle or intarsia....it's MUCH simpler.
The hardest part was figuring out the YF YB parts, but it only took me about 10 seconds to understand it. Now, it's a breeze.
