What materials did you use? Artyarns Ensemble Glitter

What advice would you give someone starting this project? As gorgeous as the Artyarns Ensemble Glitter yarn is, it was a pain to work with. The cashmere and silk threads kept on wanting to "worm" around the metallic thread. I ended up tensioning my yarn differently (i.e. loosely) and that seemed to help.

It's beautiful! Thanks for the tip about changing the tension.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful pattern. Any suggestion for using a different yarn?

I would think any variegated or self striping yarn would look gorgeous in this pattern. Perhaps something with bamboo or silk in it to give it a bit of drape.
