Will I need to add more “feathers?” I did write to the designer (see below) and as you can see, her answer was somewhat vague. This appears to be a work of some effort and time and I would not be happy to have it turn out too small. I find it confusing that on thinner yarn, smaller needles are required and with heavier yarn the larger ones are used. My little brain just doesn’t want to take that in!

“It’s hard to say the finished size because of the shape of it. The shortest part from the neck to the edge (measured straight down as if you’re wearing it) should be around 18 inches. From the center of the back to the tips of the wings would be closer to 3 feet.
Making it for a petite person it could be shorter, for a large person it should be larger”.
