This is a fun, quick knit that plays with different weights of yarn for a different effect in you knitting. With it knit in the round, it works great as a shawl/wrap and as a cowl, single or double wrapped.
Gauge isn’t crucial to the pattern. If you are a tight knitter, use US 7s, loose, use US 6s or 5s. The lace weight yarn is the one knit in stockinette stitch that really shows the difference in needle size. It’s best to use a wool base yarn as is blooms and fulls to make a nicer fabric.
