The quirky nature of Cinne's construction appealed through the knitting process and also in the finished piece. Some of that lace is vertical, some horizontal.
That gives CInne just a little different look - and that appeals to me.
This is one pattern that would have benefited from row-count instructions. All instructions were in inches, but the stretchy nature of lace makes it difficult to achieve an accurate, ruler reading. Flopped down on my blocking board in a relaxed, unblocked, unstretched state, here is the length.
Just a gentle tug and look. 21 or 22 inches is my goal for the length, so blocking is definitely required.
