Pay What Works: Inspired by the models of other designers that I trust and respect, I’m now offering a “Pay What Works” model. I like this model because it accurately reflects the pride that I take in all of my designs and the effort that I put into them, while staying true to my heart: that knitting should be accessible to everyone, no matter what their current life situation.

Cunegonde is the paramour of Candide. She is a beautiful, but very simple minded lady. With that in mind, I now introduce my second instillation to my Candide collection. This cowl makes a great introduction to lace knitting or a fun mindless project for those experienced with lace! It is a simple knit, but creates a pretty end product.

Cunegonde comes in two basic sizes, and is written for both DK and Worsted weight yarns.

Willamette Valley Wool Company PendragynDK (100% SW merino, approx 330yds/4oz)
The large size uses the entire skein, so if your gauge varies greatly from mine, you may want to cut the height by 1 repeat.
Pictured: Libation (purple-y burgundy) in size Small and Fire and Spice (orange) in size Large. The small size leaves enough yarn to make most sizes of the coordinating Maggie.
Willamette Valley Wool Company Wyvern (100% SW merino, approx 470yds/250g)
The large size leaves enough yarn to make a small cowl or most sizes of a matching Maggie!
Pictured: Evergreen (green) in size Large.

DK: US6 4mm in 24” (40”) circular
Worsted: US8 8mm in 24” (40”) circular
or size to obtain gauge.

DK: 23sts/4” 10cm in st st.
Worsted: 20sts/4” 10cm in st st.
Both gauge swatches were knit flat and left unblocked for ease of reading the gauge.
