Flames Cowl By Kathleen Cubley

Size Guide

I developed this pattern in honor of all of those fighting breast cancer. The flame stitch pattern is to remind the knitter or the wearer to fight her battle like a firefighter battling a fire: Never give up.

Finished Measurements: 9" wide X 9½" tall, blocked

Yarn: 1 skein Malabrigo Merino Worsted (210 yds / 192 m), in Color 184 (Shocking Pink), or any soft worsted-weight yarn

Needles: US #9 / 5.5 mm

Gauge: 18 stitches = 4 inches in flame stitch pattern

A note about the chart: This is an easy lace pattern, that you will quickly memorize, but you do need to move the marker on a couple of the rounds to change the start of the row (SOR). Changing the SOR when marked on the chart will keep the lace pattern lined up correctly.

Errata: There is an error in the written directions in the first version of the pattern. Rounds 1, 3, 5, and 7 should read:

Round 1: K1, YO, K3, DVD, K3, YO 
Round 3: Slip M, K1, YO, K3, DVD, K3, YO 
Round 5: Slip M, K1, YO, K3, DVD, K3, YO 
Round 7: Slip M, K1, YO, K3, DVD, K3, YO
