Cool Texture, Careful with Sizing Review by Spider

This pattern is really well written, easy to follow, even for someone who is not experienced with Tunisian crochet.

The texture comes out very cool-looking in a solid yarn as well (I used a Patons wool in turquoise).

My one issue is that this came out a bit smaller than the size indicated, even though I made a swatch that came out to dimensions. But this could just be an issue with my tension over such a large piece. I haven't finished sewing all the pieces together yet, but I'm hoping it will still fit!
