Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, is home to Beinn Bhreagh, the former estate of Alexander Graham Bell. Here he worked on many of his inventions including the Silver Dart. The Silver Dart took wing from the icy surface of Baddeck Bay in the winter of 1909 making it the first controlled powered airplane flight in Canada and the British Empire.

Come Fly With Me is an airy and luscious cable and lace shawl ~ like wearing a cloud on your shoulders! The shawl is knit flat, from side to side. The windmill-lace pattern is bordered by a yarn-over cabled edge (bottom edge of shawl) while the upper-central portion of the shawl is worked in Garter stitch. A narrow yarn-over cable separates the Garter stitch section from the lace pattern. A knit-in mock I-Cord provides a lovely finish for the top edge.

The pattern contains both written instructions and full charts.

When I first saw this pattern I was intimidated by the design. I have been knitting lace patterns for quite sometime but nothing as intricate as this. But after reading through the written as well as the charted versions I thought I would give it a try. The pattern is so very well written & I believe anyone could knit this. Every detail is thoroughly well described. I was so pleased as to just how fast this was to knit, that I might knit it again.

This pattern is extremely well written, every detail is well described. There were a few new knit stitches that I had never encountered before, but with the directions given I had no problem learning them. The end result is well worth the extra time it takes. I used Knitpicks Bare Hare & a size 6-knitting needle. It came out gorgeous!! {A word about the bare hare, it does shrink quite a bit even in a cold wash, that is why I used a size 6-needle.}
