The Re-Birth of Ruffles
I HIGHLY recommend Lion Brand Microspun for this project!
I am still trying to figure out what to do as far as Color on Color goes. I joined the yahoo group (Color on Colour) and have picked up some good info from there. A lot (most?) people knitting it with the specified yarn are totally unable to get the gauge as specified in the pattern. Plus it's difficult to find the Paternayan Persian yarn not cut into 30 inch lengths, although some people have reported finding it in uncut 8 yard skeins.
I had one skein lying around from an old project and did some experimenting. On size 5 needles (as the pattern calls for), I came nowhere close to gauge. I got 24 stitches to the inch instead of 17. And at that gauge each 30 inch strand allowed me to create between 40 and 45 stitches. That translates into WAY MORE ends than I want to weave in!! So I'm still contemplating what I want to do.
