We did a self guided quilt shop hop of quilt shops and two yarn shops in Western MA last weekend. No crowds and more fun :). I bought this as a kit but the pattern with the kit was a little complicated and difficult to read the stitches behind the fuzz so I used another pattern. The pattern I used is Simple Summer Cowl (free on Ravelry). The yarn is 100% angora bunny from France called Absolu by Anny Blatt purchased at a yarn shop Colorful Stitches in the Berkshires. The color is caviar. The feel is decadent :). I'm doing the pattern that came with this kit in a part merino wool part angora rabbit yarn. It will fuzz up after a while but while doing it the stitches are very well defined so I'm staying on track with the pattern :). Pictures soon. I can't imagine it taking me more than a couple of days to finish.
