I like both of them but this one looks better.

I tend to get cold easily and I find it is the right weight in airconditioned places and looks like it would also knock a chill off the shoulders in the winter just sitting watching TV.

I love this pattern. It makes up quickly. I take it when I go to an air-conditioned area and it is just the right size.

I searched for this yarn and found some sellers on eBay. To help you find a current compatible yarn, it is: category 5 in weight, eyelash style, bulky, but medium weight. It is hand wash :p, and comes in 70 yard, 1.75 oz. skeins, recommended I crochet hook. It shouldn't be too hard to find something comparable. Have fun crocheting!

@crochetinc 8847204 - Thanks for bringing that to our attention. I'm sure many readers will appreciate knowing that this yarn is no longer available. We would suggest asking your local craft store what a comparable yarn would be. Thanks! -The editors of FaveCrafts
