KW: This design has lace worked both on right side and wrong side rows. What is your go-to tip for knitters who are wary of working lace on both sides?
LN: I like to highlight my chart and key which really helps separate out the right side from wrong side directions. Just grab your favorite color highlighter and highlight all the even (WS) rows on the chart, and with that same highlighter mark the WS directions on the key. Now it is easy to differentiate between the two sides making it simpler to keep track of whether you are working knit or purl stitches!
KW: What was the main inspiration or starting point for this design?
LN: Oh, this was all about cables and lace…. and the mediation of working a stitch pattern. Also, have you felt this yarn? I knew it had to be a lacey cowl, in fact, if there is one design I am considering knitting for my wardrobe, this is it. I know I would wear it a ton!
