Black Cherry Lambic contains patterns for three different projects - wrap, scarf, or cowl - using variations on the same stitch pattern and cable borders. Pick the one that suits your wardrobe needs and your yarn quantity!

This lovely stitch pattern was truly addictive - it has a combination of texture and lace that really stands out in a subtle hand dyed yarn. The geometric cable edging adds a little contrast to the flowy nature of the fabric and balances the edges out for interest.

Cables are charted - and the lace is easier than you think!

Sarah WILL be offering pattern and yarn kits in Primo for the Lambics in the Plucky Knitter shop soon. I hear there are new and not-so-repeatable colorways coming, and she’s working on getting it all set up.

I’ll be sure to share the info on my blog, here, and and in my Ravelry BabyCocktails group when she’s ready, so nobody will miss out.

Primo is perfect for this kind of project - with a subtle and deep variation of color. It’s durable and soft enough for next to skin wear, and has just enough weight to drape nicely and keep a neck warm.
