What advice would you give someone starting this project? A couple of things: 1.) This is a great beginner lace project because it's not complicated and works up quickly! BUT, if you're a knitting newbie, the pattern leaves a lot to be desired. For instance, the designer tells you where to place the markers, but not where to slip the markers. 2.) Chart B - the marker pattern is basically this: k2, sm, lace instructions, k1 (which is the center stitch), sm, lace instructions, sm, k2 3.) Chart C - you can nix the markers here. 4.) Extra repeats of Chart B will make your neckwarmer longer side to side (across the top). Extra repeats of Chart C will make your neckwarmer longer top to bottom. Adding extra repeats won't affect any of the knitting instructions at all.

thank you for the helpful comments, your project is beautiful. I live in the UK (N.I) did you use a double weight yarn?
