Hi, I found this (http://elann.com/ShowFreePattern.asp?Id=97024) pattern and have fallen completely in love with it!

So, am currently saving up for the wool/yarn to knit it with. The pattern calls for Elann Endless Summer Luna - which they don't seem to stock anymore unless i'm missing something!

Can anyone suggest how I can find out the composition of the yarn they recommended so I can find a substitute?

Thank you!!

El.

Here is the guage listed in the pattern: Gauge:
Measured over Flickering Flames Lace Pattern, before blocking, approx. 18 sts/ 20 rows = 4" on 5.5 mm (US 9) needles. After blocking, approx. 18 sts/18 rows = 4".

You need to find a similar yarn tht will give you the same guage. www.yarndex.com is a good place to start.

Thank you Marylin! That page is now bookmarked for future use, and will be lots of help in me looking for a yarn!

Thanks again.
