It took 3 skeins of this novelty yarn to make this fun scarf for my mom. The yarn was ok to work with, but it was a real pain when I dropped a stitch. I had to frog several rows before I was able to recover from it. Another negative about the yarn is that when you join another skein to it, it is best to tie a knot so that there is no hole in it (it is not easy to weave in ends). Although this scarf turned out nice, I don't want to work with this yarn again.
