Yarn: Patons Shetland Chunky, 75% Acrylic/25% Wool, in light blue

Needles: 5.5 mm / 9 US

Gauge: 3.5 stitches and 5 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Cat's Eye

Source: CEoS, p. 423.

Comments: This is described as a shetland lace pattern in the Stitch description - in a finer yarn it would be good for that, but with this chunky yarn, I just don't see it.  I think part of the problem is the yarn itself - the high acrylic factor in this yarn keeps it soft, but also makes it look fuzzy and not just a little shiny!  I have to say though, once again this is old-school Patons (from about 9 or 10 years ago) and this version is much better than its current counterpart!
