The Wild West: Cables – Jackalope Stole

SUNSET CAT-21You know how you’re not really supposed to have favorites but sometimes in your heart of hearts you do?  Jackalope is one of my favorites.
Even in SoCal, I can wear this in the winter at night if we go out to, say, a beer garden or some such.  If I get too hot, I just take it off; but when there’s that chill (and heh, give me a break, I’m from California!) it’s heaven to nestle up in this.

PATTERN NOTES

This stole just begs you to curl up with it. I love that the yarn, Mopsy, has angora in it; it just seems so fitting for a pattern inspired by a rabbit-like creature!

Although this is densely cabled, it works up quicker than expected on the US9 needles.
