Pattern Description:

Named for a street near my home in lower Manhattan, Lispenard is a long cowl that combines cables and lace. The cowl is worked in one piece, with button bands on either end to join the cowl.

The beautiful texture of the Fibre Company Acadia yarn adds visual interest without detracting from the rich combination of stitch patterns.
