What advice would you give someone starting this project? take the time to learn the pattern without a lot of distractions, If you're making it more than one pattern-width, put markers at the beginning of each section.

I'd love to try this afghan! What size needles and what yarn did you use?

worsted weight (wool) - whatever needle size makes sense. I can't remember. sorry!

I can't wait to try this - it is delicate looking but I think it must be sturdy as has that feeling about it. I'm thinking of baby blankets for twins - in a light weight cotton/DK to keep the pattern crisp and the babies cool/comfy and itch-free. Do you think it would/could work out as well?

sure. seems pretty adaptable. you might want to do some type of edge/binding to firm it up, like an i-cord or something.

MAybe a size 10 or 10 1/2 needles that is what I am going to try. Gues it is something we will all have to play with to see what we like. Good luck one and all. Hope my idea helps.
