Restarted 3 times because intial rows seemed too tight. Finally did cast on's so loose it was ridiculous, even wrote company for advice (they were very prompt and helpful) but in the end it was still too tight. Pattern is extremely hard. I finally struggled through and finished it. Went to block it and the darn tight cast on ended up breaking! I solved the issue by stretching it out and then doing a single crochet across the whole cast on so it wouldn't fall apart or break further. When all is said and done, it is beautiful and I will be proud to wear it. One big plus: if you can manage to do this pattern you can probably knit anything!
