Artemisia Cowl

2014-10-12 09.30.45Recognize the location? It’s Veteran’s Park in Redondo Beach again.  I love these pilings, and I think the soft gray of the Artemisia Cowl, my new release, looks great against the worn wood.

The Artemisia Cowl includes one of the my favorite Aran Lace cables (#28 from Annie Maloney’s book, Aran Lace), flanking the larger panel that I’ve used either directly in Sedona or as a variation in Jackalope.

I chose these panels not only for aesthetics but because they allow the knitter to gain practice in two of the main Aran Lace techniques: paired yarnovers and decreases to outline the path of the cable, and yarnovers and decreases within the cable itself.
