I honestly think you use any yarn your heart desires.  The pattern is such an easy one, to adapt to your size.  A tape measure and some easy calculations should get you on your way just fine.  BTW, I had to rip mine out, it was too huge.  So we'll see if the 4th time is the charm.  At least now, I can work on both sides at once.

I'm terrified of this pattern. I'm looking for a knitpicks yarn sub, the yarn it calls for is fingering according to this site? Is that true!?

I think that I'm going to sub with KnitPicks Shine Sport...hey, the price is right!  I have too many projects going on right now, so I'm probably not going to get to it right away...BUT I'm really into knitting summer tops right now, so maybe it will get bumped up on my list!

The price, yes. But what about the gague? I SUCK at modifying!!

I found a fingering weight yarn I have in the stash that I'm going to try because the yarn the pattern calls for is fingering weight.

Do you actually have the pattern yet?  I ask, because this is one of the easiest patterns to modify.  I promise if you had it in front of you, you would be able to see the light.

Here's what my busy little hands did last night, orangina, for the sexy knitters KAL.    I'm using, for the first time in my short knitting career, the rec'd yarn -- Rowan 4-ply cotton.  The color is tutti-friutti and we'll just have to see about that.  So far I love knitting it, it's my first lace, really.  The stitch pattern in fun and easy, after 2 repeats I no longer needed to look at the paper.  I've two concerns so far, one -- that although I purchased the right amount of yarn, I'll run out before I make it just a  tad longer than the pattern calls for, and two -- that the lacework is open enough, pinkie's gonna make an appearance.  Do other people wear something under this?  Well, at least the colors are about the same, pinkie will blend.

I'm knitting a size small, which is a bust size of 36".  I've always been about a 34" but lately I've had a bit of what I thought was heartburn but really was a too-tight bra, so now I guess I'm a 35".  So I'm knitting a 36" but my guage is a bit tighter than the pattern's so it should (I hope, I hope) work out.  I didn't want to cast on 9 more for the next size up because I thought that would be too big.  Right now, with a CO of 112, it measures 17.5" inches, which would make it exactly 35" around.  Should be perfect...right?
