Did you see these in the Summer Issue of Interweave Knits? You know, neither did I. But I accidentally included the magazine in a box that I sent mom and she saw them. The orginal plan was to use the cotton that is called for... No such luck finding it here. I pulled out a skein of Araucania Coliumo Multy (70% wool, 30% silk) that I had in my stash and cast on.
