1. The pattern may be enlarged/reduced to fit any window (see pattern.) Remember that if you enlarge the pattern you may require more yarn than stated in this pattern.
2. Thicker yarn such as No. 40 or No. 60 crochet cotton may be used, but the drapes will be more bulky with less light coming through. 1-ply yarn will be too thick and bulky for this project.
