Is there a chart for this pattern? Complicated designs like this one are much easier to understand and follow from a chart.

Its just like using 2 needles. Just cast on and knit to the end and turn around and go back across. Its easier than 2 needles, I use circular needles for all my knits.
Hope this helps.

Knitting on circular needles are just like knitting with straight, only easier. With the 111 sts to cast on, circulars are more efficient and less chance of losing sts from the tips of the straight needles.

Personally, I now only use dpn straight needles for the small projects...socks etc.

Yes, you could,but don't forget to add a selvedge stitch at each edge, for sewing up later. But give circulars a try! the most important thing to remember is to make sure the stitches aren't twisted before you join. I lay my cast-on on a flat surface, pull the stitches to the outside, and join. Good luck either way.

To make it wider you could play around with adding an extra "3p, c2b" to each side of the center lace panel and perhaps at the sides as well...

the pattern is written in size small... p1, (3, 8, 11) are the number of purl stitches for Medium, Large and X-Large.

YO... in row 2 is yarn over, it makes an extra stitch in row, the odd rows you will see the extra stitch is taken with K2tog or p2tog

I would absolutely make this if the pattern allowed a 3X size. Could someone please enlarge it? I'd even think about buying it! :)

The pattern says on even rows: Row 2 and all even rows knit k over k and yon, p over p.

Could you explain this a bit more. I think I understand but would like a clarification. Thanks.

I don't understand the abbreviations, is there a guide somewhere? They are different from what I'm used to seeing.

This is so pretty. I think I might try to use a worsted yarn and larger needles to make it larger.
