Cresta Dell ‘Onda
by Susan Crawford This stunning cowl features a beautiful 10 row lace pattern. The natural bias created by the lace pattern suggests the crest of a wave, hence the design’s name. I first found the pattern in a 1970s Golden Hands magazine called Italian Lace. The cowl uses my new yarn Fenella - a 3 ply weight yarn - knitted on a 4.5mm needle to create a soft, open fabric. The shorter version takes 3 skeins, the longer takes 6, however the pattern can be used to create cowls of many different lengths. The cowl is knitted from side to side using a provisional crochet cast-on and the cast-on and cast-off edges are then joined using three needle cast off or grafting of the stitches. Instructions are given on how to work a provisional cast-on. The lace pattern is worked on all rows but is particularly easy to follow and is a great pattern for a beginner lace knitter wanting to move to the next level. Both written and charted instructions are provided. Standard yarn tension 30-36 sts & 36-42 rows = 10cm (4in) using 2.75mm-3mm needles over stocking stitch. This pattern is available as PDF download only. Requirements: Fenella 2 ply wool, 100% pure new British wool 3 (6) skeins shade Chalk 1 pair 4.5mm (US 7) needles 4mm crochet hook Waste yarn for provisional cast-on Tapestry needle Spare needle if working three needle bind off.

Shrimpton Collarette
by Susan Crawford Named after a glamorous face of the 60s, Jean Shrimpton, this is perfect for dressing up a simple outfit. Best worn with lashings of black eyeliner! The collar is worked from side to side using short rows, and is a great introduction to this technique. Knitting commences at the front left point of the button tab and is worked sideways from right to left to the same point on the right button tab. The collarette is worked completely in garter stitch with some short row shaping. Because the short rows are worked over garter stitch there is no need to work a wrap around unworked stitches. This project only takes one 50g ball of Excelana DK weight yarn. Supplied as a PDF download.
