It is HUGE. I had to leave out one round because I was running out of yarn (Lily Sugar 'n Cream: Oriental). I should note that it was not a full skein (I am trying to use partial balls first).
I don't always follow the suggested supplies (Dishie, US 7 hook). I used an I hook and the Sugar 'n Cream yarn. All of which I am sure contributed to its robustness.
The pattern is easy to remember and almost mindless (unless you are a counter like me).
*I looked for the pattern link and it is not pulling up on the Knit Picks site at the moment. I am linking to the Ravelry page for it.
