The blue of the sea meets earthy greens as the lace pattern captures the lapping ocean waves and the cables remind one of the gnarled tree trunks of the ancient forests.
These sea-earth elements are mirrored in the scalloped Latvian Twist Cast On (picture tutorial included) and the Rolled Hem Bind Off. Wear it with either side up for two completely different looks from the same pattern.
In white, this cowl would be the perfect accent to a winter wedding.
The pattern incorporates an easy lace / cable combination. It is a wonderful introduction to lace and cable knitting. For the experienced knitter it is a quick knit with stunning results.
Lace and cable patterns are charted as well as written out.
The blue yarn used in this model varied from almost white to cyan; the green from almost white through mint to mid-green.
Knit in the round; no seaming. Work begins with one colour, a transition area in the middle and finishes in the second colour.
