For size XS (S) 6 (8) oz of hand-spun yarn, knitable with needles US 13/15 (9/10 mm)

This pattern was designed with handspun yarn in mind.
Substitute with any commercial bulky/chunky yarn to match gauge (needle size)
Larger sizes can be easily accommodated by casting on more stitches and adding stockinette stitch rows in between the lace segments.
Alternatively you may adapt the pattern as is with the use of larger needles (and bulkier yarn) to create sizes medium & large.
The sample in this listing is knit with my Lunamuse Fiberart limited edition handspun yarn I spun from Nubian mohair, Namaste Farms mohair & raw silk.
Once you have purchased this listing I will email you a PFD file of the pattern within 24 hrs.
