I have been coming to this forum for quite sometime and all the help and support that I have recieved here is truely invaluable! Thanks ALL for that!
So here’s my dilemma:
I am attempting to do my first big project. Here is the pattern. I have yet to get the yarn and needles and would like some help on this.

I looked into the pattern and it’s not a hard repeat/pattern. And I think that I am ready to do this. (I have done a few fan and feather lace scarves.)
I just need help with the start and getting them onto the circular needles and I can take it from there. I have looked at the tutorial using the magic loop way, but I am a little confused at how to keep track of my increases and decreases. So, maybe to start with this pattern I should do DPN/'s, but once again, I have not done that as well.
So, I was wondering if someone out there with some time would be able to help me do this via PM’s or chat. I live in CA/PST. It may be a few weeks before I am able to start, since I need to get the yarn and needles for this project, but waiting to hear what size needles to get and to start off with. (DPN’s or Circular for Magic Loop) Either way, I will be getting the 40" Addi’s.
Since I haven’t tried DPN’s, it may be a good way to learn the Magic Loop Method instead.
Thanks for your help and looking foward to hearing back from someone.
