Its going to look huge, don't worry. It does wrap around. It won't look right until you put it together. Stick with it! once you are done the arms (and start the fronts) its smooth sailing!! Oh, and USE a lifeline for your lace, its a pain to keep ripping out.

Great work!  It looks quite elaborate (and time-consuming).

Good tip about the lifelines! And thanks for answering my question about it wrapping around- I was getting worried before I saw your post!

That's gorgeous--I've seen versions of this design that look a little chunky, but yours drapes beautifully!

Wow--that's beautiful!

I have a newbie question, though--what's a lifeline?  (Other than something on that millionaire game show, of course.)

If I was any more open, I'd be inside out.

A lifeline is a very cool trick. You take a piece of contrasting waste yarn (I used white thin ribbon) and you thread it through the stitches that are on the needles (I use my darning needle). Then, if you make a mistake and have to rip back, you have stitches on your lifeline that you know are correct!

It makes the next row a bit hard to knit (especially on this project that was a size 5 needles), but it makes it so worth it!
