Ellie’s Laar

I'm knitting a summer sweater called Laar for Ellie.  I'm using the pattern yarn, a Zephyr silk-wool blend.

My swatch was, miraculously, dead on gauge.

Then I started casting on: a knitted on cast on, cast on 5 and cast off 2, for some 200 plus stitches.  Yes, this will make a beautiful picot edging at the bottom of the sweater, but I'm afraid it may also leave me blind.  And, the yarn likes to split.  Casting on alone may be a long term project.  I wonder if Laar will be worth it?
