The Debut of Coquette

Welcome to Coquette! After months in the knitting bag, false starts on the lace bits, and serious thought about dumping the project due to heat, she is finished!

This pattern is from Knitter's Magazine, Fall 04 (I believe). I used the suggested Stampato Merino in Black but chose the Rowan homespun for the lace. The merino is just SOOO soft. Here's the back.

The longish sleeves and boxy fit ensure this will feel like a comfy, everyday sweater. If it ever gets cool (104 during the photoshoot), I will be wearing this one a lot!

Here's a close up of the neck. I like the edging that you embroider along the neckline.
