    This is my next project. I’m planning to make this for my daughter-in-law. of the samples shown, can you tell me which ones are short and which are long cowl? In particular, I’m liking the “gold” one. Would the long cowl be doubled when worn?

    Love this pattern, it is so easy, except I dropped a stitch in row 9, ugh.

    The stitch pattern is very pretty. I think a sweater with a front or back panel done in this lace design would be lovely.

      Thanks for the suggestion! It is one of my favourite lace patterns, easy to work but very effective!

    I am loving this design! ‘…simple and clear beginner lace pattern’. Perhaps my attention span will allow it. :D
