What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take your time! At the beginning you see the work grow nicely, later on, the rounds take more and more time and you just have to keep on going until the work fits the umbrellar.
What you will need

This is gorgeous! Where did you get the pattern?
Thank you Roselens. I search through magazines and pick a pattern that has 8 oder 16 points, depending on the umbrellar I am going to use. Then I adjust the pattern oder mix-match with others until I reach the necessary size. Most of my magazines are older ones from the time I lived in Ontario (~1970/80)G
