Mario, thanks so much for sharing this pattern with us all. It was a great pleasure to knit, even in black. And I kinda followed your advice when blocking. It was MUCH easier! Mine is done in Cascade 220. Just two skeins. it measures approximately 72 inches x 60 inches x 60 inches. It will be a gift for my hubby's sister. His other sister will be jealous so I'll just plan on making one for her too!
