Pattern Description from A Fine Fleece: “The cuffs and collar can be knit using a needle three sizes larger than the needle used to knit the body, which makes the cuffs and collar dramatic and lacey, but you may choose a straighter cuff instead. Also, the loosened gauge gives a lace effect even though the weight of the handspun is closer to sport weight and the Ultra alpaca is a worsted weight. Play with yarn and gauge to get the effect you desire for your Ravensong.”
