Serena is the one of the designs that is features in my Accessory Collection 2011. I wanted to create a collection that is functional and different skill level for all knitters. Serena is a cowl design that features interweave cable panel with simple cable rib. I wanted to create a design that is fun for experienced knitters and also fun for beginner who would like to experience working on cable. Here is the basic information about Serena:SIZE
One Size fit most

Circumference: 63 inches without stretch after pressing
Height: 8″ Can be varies depending on each individual preference

Yarn: Worsted Weight Yarn – 390 yards minimum for size stated above; more yardage will be required for a taller and wider cowl.
Sample was worked in Blackstone Tweed by Berroco (65% Wool, 25% Superkid mohair, 10% Angora Rabbit Hair ; 130 yd /50 g) Color: Rhubarb (2642); 3 skeins

Ribbing – Size 7 (4.50 mm): 46 inches circular (cir) needle. Adjust needle sizes to obtain the correct gauge.
Main Body – Size 8 (5.00 mm): 46 inches circular (cir) or longer. Adjust needle sizes to obtain the correct gauge.
NOTE: If you prefer using dpn, please substitute the same size as the circular needle

14 stitch markers, Tapestry needle

18 sts and 24 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette st with Size 7 (4.50 mm) needle
50 sts and 24 rows = 9 x 4 inches in 1 set of Interweave Cable Panel and 6 sts Cable Panel with Size 8 (5.00 mm) needle

Note: If the gauge does not match exactly like it stated in this pattern is not that important. A circumference of the cowl is very much depending a personal preference.

The pattern include detailed instruction and charts.

A special thanks to my friend, Karen K for taking pictures for my design.

Unit Price: $3.00 and purchase now via Ravelry.com
