This is not happening anytime soon… Sorry! I love the design but if done with the wrong yarn you end up with unattractive ripples under the arms!

An adult version of my Ponchetta design for tots.

Some of the sizes do repeat but all sizing is based on your gauge so please swatch and block your swatch before measuring for gauge.

Gauge offered: 19 stitch, 18 st., 17 st., and 16 st. gauges so this pretty much covers worsted weights through to a heavy aran.

Needles: Choose needles 2 or 3 sizes larger than recommended for st.st. Feather and Fan needs larger needles to make the lace open up and have plenty of drape. (I am knitting my sample in worsted weight on 5.5mm)
