  6. What a great pattern. With the namaste yarn how is it against the skin. I can’t normally wear wool as it irritates my skin??
    Thanks

    1. For me Namaste yarn feels very soft and not scratchy... But my perception is personal.

  9. Thank you so much for this free pattern; it is gorgeous. If I'd like to make it larger, can I just repeat rows 15 through 18 more times? Thank you.

    1. Yes, to make it larger you should just continue with pattern repeat. But because you'll get a different stitch count before lace edge, you'll need to experiment with placement of lace stitches a bit.
