Looking for another pattern to use with yet another of my impulse buys from Sock Summit, one skein of Little Red Bicycle Unicycle Lace (840 yards of superwash lace-weight merino) in color Sayuri. I did start on a lace scarf project, but when our new dog grabbed it off of the front porch and ate most of it, I was forced to start over with a project that didn’t require a full skein ).
I settled on the Open Rib Cable Cowl from More Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I double-stranded the Unicycle Lace with some of my stash yarn, Shibui Silk Cloud (60% kid mohair, 40% silk) in color Ash. I knit on US 4 16″ circular needles, and added Earthfaire beads (6/0 crystal) in one of the first rows and one of the last rows.
The finished project is very beautiful and very luxurious – a perfect Christmas gift.
