This pattern is written for fingering yarn but I used sport weight. I fell in love with this yarn at first sight; the color is a deep, interesting blue and it was super affordable. The problem is that at 164 yards, there's not a whole lot of one-skein options. I considered making some fingerless gloves but let's get real -- when I have a choice, I will almost always make a neck-thing.
I cast on 10 sts less for one less lace repeat
I did 5 lace repeats rather than the 8 the pattern recommended
I used the whole skein.
The pattern really came out in blocking, and when I was knitting it I kept considering switching to stockinette because the lace wasn't showing up. Patience, my knitting friends, patience is the key.
