No, no, I haven’t produced a remake of the wonderful 1979 James Bond movie. How could I improve upon Jaws? Moonraker is a sibling pattern to Spinnaker; both are named after sails. The Moonraker cowl pattern is available through Ravelry for $6.00USD, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/moonraker-cowl .
I used my super-spy skills to create a variant of my Spinnaker Capelet; the lace is now fully reversible and still sparkles with beads. The stockinette and reverse stockinette move along intuitively, and they fold and crease wonderfully when worn.
Two sizes offer you the option of a snug neck warmer or a longer infinity cowl, for however you like to tackle adventures.
The green version uses Wollmeise Pur in Schwefel (o schwefel, how I love thee). It used 112g of the 154g skein, and 660 beads (almost 60g). The coral version is Tosh Sock, in Grapefruit – I used .9 of a skein, or thereabouts, and about 500 beads.
Finished (blocked) measurements are S[L] – 38 x 60cm[22 x 133]cm / 15 x 24”[9 x 52]”.
And as I mentioned, the lace is totally reversible, which is especially nice for the infinity cowl.
(Does that look like a front and back? It totally is!) Again, Moonraker is available on Ravelry for $6.00 USD. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/moonraker-cowl .
