Those stars are pretty and very clever, but they are hard on the hands! Here are some things that might help make them a bit easier:
My row gauge was way off, but it worked out fine since I was going to modify the rate of increases to create a slimmer shape anyway. The skirt is about 1-1/2" shorter than the pattern. At the bottom, I used a contrasting color--knit 1 round, purl 1 round, bind off in purl.
