Regarding updates: the files should be listed in the order in which they were posted, so the most up to date version, with all the clues and the most correct info should be the last one posted. It is marked Gerda.pdf

Recommended Needles: 4 mm, US size 6 (for laceweight), OR 5 mm, US size 8 (for fingerweight), OR whatever needle will give you the fabric you like

Pattern Notes: Always slip markers as you come to them. Their locations will be indicated in the first section, but after that, you will need to remember.

The half circle version includes a garter stitch border on either side. These stitches will be included in the directions, but not in the stitch counts for each row.

Techniques required: chart reading, increasing and decreasing, lace, working in the round.
