What a lovely pattern.

I suggest taking a stab at it with larger needles and thicker yarns just to be sure you will be comfortable following the instructions. As a general rule for lace, I like to go up a couple of needle sizes from the one generally recommended for the yarn. If you treat starting it as a practice swatch, it might not be so overwhelming. Your practice piece might even become a nice, lacy lap robe.

Also, be prepared to use a lot of stitch markers and to constantly count. Since you have an outwardly expanding stitch pattern counting will be essential. You might want to be prepared to use some life lines here and there but see how you feel after doing a practice swatch.
