French Cancan

This is a beautiful pattern from Mademoiselle C. It used only two skeins of Orange Flower Merino Silk DK in Meteorite.

The edging makes it look difficult, but actually its a very simple repetitive cable pattern which gives an impressive result. I must admit that 50 repeats of the edging pattern did get a bit boring at times, so this took me a while to finish in between other projects.

I blocked it with blocking wires which really helped make the picot edging  even.

    Very beautiful! That blocking was really well done.
