WOO HOO!! Congrats! I am hoping to finish the full Chart 1 tonight and start my repeats.

I am knitting Icarus as my first lace project and my first real chart reading project (though I'm a fairly experienced knitter of socks and sweaters). I've frogged the first 13 rows twice and am beginning to wonder if I am out of my league with this pattern. Is there a "FAQ for Icarus" or "Troubleshooting for Icarus" anywhere? I need some help before the entire thing gets chucked across the room.

There isn't one but you could try to contact those who have finished by email or post any questions here. If you can turn a sock heel, you can do this. What I found important were the markers and lifelines until I got the hang of the increases. It also helps to photocopy the chart and mark off each row as you complete it.
