This piece made me think of notes on a staff from the very beginning. Knit in luxurious Malabrigo Silky Merino, it flows off the needles. But still, I didn’t think “notes” would be a very good pattern name. A Cadenza is a musical term referring to a solo, sometimes improvised, appearing near the end of a musical piece. When I came upon this term, it felt like it fit immediately. The project itself echoes it’s name in that there is a flourish, a solo, a cadenza that must be performed towards the end. With three optional endings, you can create your own cadenza.

The small scarf sample was done with the picot edge. It was tested with the loop edge too. However, yardage was very close.
