My, my. Give K a day off without a billion things to do and volia! Finished Objects. Here is the unblocked Lace cowl.
And here it is after blocking.
I ended up not pinning out the loops around the face and just friction blocking (no pins) the bottom lace. I think it might benefit from another blocking (in the round) for just the bottom lace alone.
Pattern: "Smoke Ring with Lace Edging" by Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer of HeartStrings Fiber Arts.
Needles: US 6 Addi Turbos (and a pain they were - not pointy enough for the decreases)
Yarn: Jaggerspun "Zephyr" in colorway "Plum" from the Yarn Barn in Lawrence, KS
Notes: Begun with a provisional caston. Added a 25 round repeat of stocking stitch between lace pattern repeat 3 and 4 to add length. See here for my take on the decorative bind off for the 'face' end.
Comments: I love this wimple, it's feminine and lovely. Had fun blocking a tube, though. I ended up having to put a clean cotton tea towel down the middle of the thing to keep the two layers from sticking together.
