Oh! I completely forgot to include some important stuff!
Here's how I came up with my calculations:
I'm using size 7 addi needles (circuluar w/ 60" cable) and Patons classic wool.
the star pattern I reference can be found here: http://static.knittingparadise.com/u...7-img_2508.jpg
The rest of the pattern I made myself. So no worries about copyright infringement!
