A pretty lace and cabled cowl, worked in the round from the bottom up. The lace design itself was used in our Annabella Dress, which featured in Knit Now Magazine, hence the name.
I'll be releasing the pattern for the matching hat, wristers and longer version of the cowl within a few days.
It's easily memorized for those used to knitting lace and simple enough for the adventurous beginner who can work from either charts or written instructions.
Ideal to use up leftovers of luxury yarns to match to a favourite sweater, or choose a colour to contrast with your Winter coat. The merino silk was used for the sample and is super soft, the yarn contains a small amount of cashmere and you can feel the difference.
I'm sure Vanna's Choice would work equally well, as would Cotton-Ease or Pantino for Summer evenings or those who can't wear wool.

DH and DS are a constant source of amusement and encouragement although I'm sure they think I'm mad when I insist on taking my knitting on holiday. I love to knit lace, cables for the challenge and interest and I'm also teaching myself to use my various knitting machines. All good fun.
I have three Labradors, one black, two chocolate. All girls and all as mad as hatters.
