(6) Name: 'Knitting : Adelina

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit. purl, yo, ssk, k2tog,[slip1, k2tog,pass sl st over]

Pattern Description:

Adelina is the second in a series of knitting patterns inspired by the embroidery motifs found in the traditional Greek women outfits. Sikinos was the first one and it was quite successful.
This time, I created a rather easy lace motif, bearing in mind that there are many novice knitters out there. I used a lively, colourful, variegated sock/lace yarn that flatters the motif, inspired by the embroidery motif on the brides(tm) dresses in Northern Greece, namely in Thraki. Then, I knitted a second one, a smaller version, using 2 solid colours, in sock yarn. I was delighted with the result.
The easily repeated pattern will hopefully make this a quick knit and the bright colours can be easily substituted by any solid colour of your choice.
The pattern includes a chart and written instructions for 2 sizes, a shawlette or a shawl, as well as instructions for a variation of the pattern, an all-over lace version, according to the notes of Tsumugi, one of my wonderful test knitters.
