I've got a question about the pattern. I'm almost through the final full repeat of Chart 1 but I'm nervous I might not have enough yarn to finish the rest. I started off with 85g (900 yds) of yarn and now I have 47g left. I'm at the point where I can either stop now and call it the final half repeat of Chart 1 or continue on for another full repeat. Will Charts 2-4 take up more than half the yarn or will I be able to use all 85g to finish the pattern as written?

I don't know about the yardage, but you should check to see how big it is now and that may help you decide. I am knitting it in Misti Alpaca Lace on size 3 needles, and I found that after 3 pattern repeats it was plenty big enough. Now I am mid-way through chart 3, and I feel like every row takes longer than the one before it. This may be my first and last venture into lace! Hope this helps, Elise
