I have it half done, but the increase did not work for me, it would have been far too big at that point, and tentlike. So instead I just increased a few stitches to make a little bit loose.

One thing that's been discussed is doing the lace part on needles one size smaller. Then it won't flare out as much.

Caron's Simply Soft, RH soft, Vanna yarn - all those would be good and you could use size 9 or 10 with those yarns.

Thanks so much suzeeq. I think that will be put on my to-do list then. I really like it and think it will be good for the purpose I have for it. Juliet, here I come!

I am a knitter of 50 years, but that pattern has a big problem. After increasing it became a tent, and I had to modify it.

Again, I think the lower part in lace should be done on a smaller needle. It's supposed to be loose and swingy though.

I've had ADD with this. LOve the pattern and yarn but I just needed to work on something else for a while. I'll be picking it back up soon.

I finished the body and now will be picking up the sleeves to make them a tad longer. I really like. I knit it a size smaller after reading on Ravelry how it comes out big. I'm going to modify the sleeves, make them longer and then add one repeat of the lace pattern at the bottom. We'll see how it turned out. You can see pics of it at my knitting blog or on ravelry.
