Cunegonde is the paramour of Candide. She is a beautiful lady, but very simple minded. 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.

DragynKnyts 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 in size Small and Fire and Spice in size Large. The small size leaves enough yarn to make most sizes of the coordinating Maggie.
DragynKnyts 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 in size Large.

DK: US6 4mm in 24” (40”) circular
Worsted: US8 8mm in 24” (40”) circular

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.
