Wild West Vol 1, Lace 1: Diamondback Cowl

Oh hai!  Yes, tSUNSET CAT-7he Diamondback Cowlone of two cowl patterns in the The Wild West: Patterns Inspired by the Flora, Fauna, Geology & History of Arizona, vol 1: Lace 1, is the cover pattern for the e-book.

As I noted the on the previous post, I met Kim of Indigodragonfly at Sock Summit 2011.  She is still wonderful and sweet and funny.  She gave me this gorgeous merino silk yarn after I promised NOT  to hug her and squeeze her and call her George.

ROMANCE

This cowl features lace, beading and a tiny bit of cabling in the top and bottom edging.

See the rattles in the edging?

PATTERN NOTES

Stitch patterns are charted.

Note that the cable edging for the top and bottom edging doesn’t repeat evenly with each lace repeat; work its repeat separately.

The center panel is a modification of Mrs Montague from A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara Walker.
