Using size 10 needles and bohemiafibers 1 skein dk weight 1 skein = 225 yards.  I used up most of the skein

Cast on 126 sts Ribbing

Rounds 1-4) P1, K1, around

Body of Cowl and Horseshoe Cable pattern

Rounds 1-4) P1, (K12, P2) repeat parentheses around but you will end with 1 purl stitch.

Round 5) P1, (slip 3 stitches onto cable needle and hold to front of work, Knit 3, Knit 3 from cable needle, slip 3 stitches onto cable needle and hold to back of work, Knit 3 stitches, Knit 3 from cable needle, P2) repeat pattern in parentheses all the way around. You will end with a P1 at end of round instead of P2

ounds 6-8) P1, (K12, P2) repeat parentheses around ending with 1 purl stitch.

Repeat rounds 1-8 four more times.

Work P1, K1 for four more rounds. Bind off and weave in ends.

  1. It's beautiful! What a wonderful way to honor Lyric.

  2. Hi,

    I am Seijasisko from Finland. I found from Raverly "Olivia's Butterfly Hat" and liked your pattern very much. I have organized at Finland charitycampaing where we collect knitted and crocheted hats to cancerpatiens to women and children who have lost of their hair at chemotherapy. I have been looking good "chemohat" patterns and I think Olivias Butterfly suits very well on that purpose. I wonder if it is Ok, that I could made translation at Finnish of this pattern and publish it at my blog. Of course I put to translated pattern link to your original pattern. All work we do is volyntary. My blogaddress is http://seijasisko.blogspot.fi/

  3. this is beautiful, valerie! do you think this would be good for a beginner knitter or too complicated?

    1. I'm just seeing your post! So sorry. If you havne't tried it yet, go for it. Are you on Ravelry? I get messages on their much faster. The cable pattern isn't very hard and is good for a first time cable project. I would be happy to help with any questions!
