Win Fiber Dreams' Clarine Cowl Pattern

May, 2013 is the 1 Year Anniversary of Laura Patterson, of Fiber Dreams, and my collaboration to bring you Fiber Dreams' beautiful knitwear designs!  From Socks, to Lace Shawls and Scarves, Accessories and Women's Garments Patterson is an amazing knitwear designer with an eye for beauty that melds pleasingly with comfort and wear-ability.  

To celebrate we're giving away a PDF copy of her latest pattern, the Clarine Cowl

Clarine
Patterson has quite a story about about how she named this cowl..."The Arthurian legend is filled to overflowing with characters, plots, intrigue… and confusion. For instance, take the lineage of one of the most loved characters: Sir Lancelot. Was he the son of King Ban or King Pant? Was his father from Benoic or Genewis (or is it spelled Gennewis)? Was his mother Helsin, Clarine (said to be King Arthur’s sister, or perhaps not), Helaine, or Elaine? Did Lancelot’s parents give him to the Lady of the Lake, or did the Lady steal him from them? Or was Lancelot stolen by a fairy to be raised in Maidenland? Confused yet? I don’t know about you, but I certainly am. In choosing a name for this pattern I thought that naming it after Lancelot’s mother would be a simple thing; instead it brought more choices, and more confusion, than one might think. In the in it came to this: I like the name Clarine, so I went with that."

Clarine is worked in the round, and starts with a folded picot hem. The lace design is worked throughout the body of the cowl, then a simple seed stitch is used to prevent curling, and to finish up the final edge. Cowl can be worn with picot edge at the top or the bottom.


Model made with a light Fingering yarn held double. It can also be made with a sport weight yarn and half the yardage, when yarn held single.
