I found the newest love of my life. Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn. Especially in Candied. It's the most delicious self-striping colorway, I love the thick-then-thickness of it, and I love just .. I just love it. I spotted it on Instagram and, of course, I stopped at Hobby Lobby, Jo-Ann, and Michael's to try to find it the very next day. I used this pattern (free on Ravelry!), one and half skeins of the yarn, and an H hook. Next time I will use at leaaaaaaast a J to try to make it as big as the picture on the pattern.
It was a super easy pattern once I got the hang of it. The written instructions are a little unclear for a little bit - I think it would've been better with a chart - but once I figured out the increase vs non-increase row differences, it was a breeze.
