A quick little project combining a double strand of Silk Fog in a simple lace pattern with the luxurious CashLuxe Fine done in contrasting garter ridges. Two buttonholes are worked on one end, but don’t let that limit you from using the holes in the lace pattern as buttonholes! Sew on several buttons for lots of options when wearing, or just use a couple. The cowl can be worn loose as shown as well as snug and cozy around the neck or at a rakish, asymmetrical angle.

Two 12-st repeats = 4 ½” (11.5 cm) and two 16-row repeats = 4” (10 cm) over lace and garter stitch pattern using 2 strands of Silk Fog (MC) held together and a single strand of CashLuxe Fine (CC) and using larger needles.

Approximately 125 yd / 115 m Silk Fog and 60 yd / 55 m CashLuxe Fine.

Increases/decreases, working simple lace from a chart or written instructions, worked flat, picking up stitches, buttonholes and sewing on buttons.
