    Will this work with Lion Brand Vel-Luxe yarn? I followed a video using this type of yarn (not what was used in the video) and a size K hook. It turned out huge! Also will this fit a woman or is it for young girls?
    Thanks

    • Hi there, This pattern was contributed by a guest designer, so I can’t answer your question directly. All of the sizing information is included in the pattern and, I believe, this is a pattern for an adult woman. As far as your yarn is concerned, most velvet yarns are the same weight and should work up similarly. You may want to check out yarnsub.com in the future to check on yarn substitutions. It’s a really helpful site!
