Winter Vine?

I am having a good time playing with graphs and cobbling together my own twists on stitch patterns. I have a pattern written for a set of cowls, one the size for a 'neck cozy' the other a full cowl size. It just kind of cropped up and muscled it's way in front of the other stuff I had all planned out. These infant patterns have a mind of their own!
I like it quite a bit. It has a hint of asymmetry about it, and combines lace and cables in a way I haven't seen before.

I did a rough version (I plan to change the edgings) and hope to have the full pattern tested and out by next week. Anyone interested in test knitting? No need to finish it by next week, I just want someone to work through a few of the pattern repeats and make certain my directions are clear and understandable.
I'm thinking about naming it 'Winter Vine' but haven't really decided yet.

Very pretty cowl! I really like the mix of cables and lace. I'd be really happy to test knit, if you're still looking for someone. (And I can get started right away.)

Diana, the pattern is EXTREMELY gorgeous! Wow. I've never seen anything like it. I think Winter Vine is the perfect name, seriously.
