yarn: Rowan Kidsilk Haze (mohair/silk) color: Elegance 577
hook: 3.25mm
pattern: Cold Shoulders with added rows (repeated row 12 an additional 12 times) and change in gauge, changed pom tie to ribbon.

I gifted this one, to a friend who lives in sunny California, because it's so lightwieght--almost a whisper in weight.  I'm sure she'll be able to wear it even on summer evenings. This mohair/silk yarn is like a pet----incredibly soft. Tricky sometimes to work with, but the overall effect is gorgeously soft and lucious.

The pattern is pretty simple, I can imagine already a number of different takes on it--a longer cape with arm slits, different looks with dramatic yarns and gauge and on and on...would love to see how other people have adapted it!

I never thought about a laceweight version of this! I love it so much more than the original pattern. Smiley

"Oh well we sometimes feel we're to blame in some way for what our gran's become. I mean she used to be happy here until she, she started on the crochet.
 Now she can't do without it. Twenty balls of wool a day, sometimes. If she can't get the wool she gets violent. What can we do about it?"
