The pattern even shows it being worn as a hood (you can weave a ribbon along the side) but it looked rather hilarious. I'm sure my wisp will get lots of wear. Here's the knitty gritty:
Needles: circulars Size 7
Yarn: Kathmandu DK color 400 (used 2 balls)
Mods: I used a totally different yarn than the pattern called for. I also used a smaller size needle.
Finished length: 50 inches by 10 inches.
