Estee—pronounced “es-TEE”—means star, and the cables worked among the eyelets in this cowl remind me of stars. I discovered this stitch pattern in one of my Japanese stitch dictionaries. I love the way that two common stitch patterns—yarnovers with decreases plus a fourstitch cable—mix to make a sweet, feminine fabric.
