The double wings of this stitch made me want to name the pattern after a type of bird, or a place where birds are known to gather, like southern California's San Juan Capistrano and the swallows that return to nest there every year.
This design incorporates two versions of one stitch pattern: one increases using a yarn over, the other using a make 1. The result is a cozy cowl that drapes nicely over the shoulders.
Model: Classic Elite Fresco in Ashley Blue; 2 hanks.
Gauge: 21 sts and 25 rows to 4 inches (10 cm) in stitch pattern, blocked
I have knit and crocheted, and done various forms of embroidery and needlepoint since early grammar school. Making things with bits of colored string is so integral to my being that the few times of my life when I don't have *something* on the go feel empty, and without form.
