Little Twig – a small project for luxury yarn

My sister brought me one skein of beautiful Italian cashmere from a trip a few years ago, and I put it away because I didn’t know what to do with it. Then last year I got a new winter coat that was almost the same colour as the yarn, and decided the time had come to make something.

I figured a lace cowl would work for the yardage, found a lovely Estonian Twig Lace (Hagakiri) pattern that worked in the round, did a bit of math, concentrated really hard for two-hour bursts, and now I have this lovely cowl. I didn’t come up with the lace pattern myself so I am offering the pattern for free.

Happy holidays!

Here is a little Fetching gift for you: free gift tags for your holiday knitting! There are six different double-sided tags (full-colour on one side and b&w on the other), which can be printed on letter-sized paper.

Printing tip: For best results, print in colour on cardstock, and set your printer for “actual size” (make sure it’s not set to “shrink to fit”).
