This is one of the most attractive patterns!!
I really love the result.
Thank you, Heidi ! (and for answering my question)
The eye-cathcing lacy collar is very elegant. Even though the name of the lace is Bear Track. Grrrrr

My Bear is not a winter garnment, the yarn is linen.



  • Using jp#6(3.9mm) needle, Cable CO and work one set of BT patt.

  • Change to jp#7(4.2mm) needle to work the rest of the BT lace and all the rest.

  • Did Body first, then worked sleeves in the round.

  • Decreasing at the sides were kept going till the middle of the waist line ( dec 6 times), then worked till the edge without dec/inc.

  • Sleeve: knit 30rnds, dec every 13th rnd 3 times, knit 6 rnds, k rib for 6 rnds.

Gauge:to obatain using jp#8(4.5mm)
a bit loose, worry about how it will strech.
Lace should be done with smaller needle??
Yes, decided to use one smaller needle.


I made a mistake!!
RLI/LLI are not counted as one st, like kfb!!
