Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Read a Knitting Pattern
  • Read a Chart
  • Basic Lace work
  • Wrong Side patterning

Pattern Description:

A crescent shaped shawl with unusual shoulder shaping, Atreides is a stylized representation of a soaring eagle in flight.

It includes both a small and a large size and is designed to highlight hand-painted sock/fingering yarns with up to a medium level of variegation (use highly variegated yarn at your own risk, it could look awesome). The shoulder shaping helps both sizes sit beautifully on the shoulders and the larger size can be worn "bandit" style or with the long ends curling gracefully from the shoulder.

Instructions are a combination of both written and charted directions with the lace panel provided in chart form only. This pattern is not for mindless knitting; the construction and some unorthodox stitch marker techniques require intermediate/experienced knitting skills. Stitches include single decreases on both RS and WS as well as double decreases on the WS. But don't let that scare you! Once you get the hang of the lace it moves right along.

And if you like a little sparkle there are optional instructions for placement of beads.

My family is made up of moi, my loving/enabling husband, my silly son and two rascally rabbits. I have a passionate love for hand-painted yarns and got sick of trying to knit them up and having them look less than optimal. I try my best to design so that variegated yarns look good in my patterns, often designing specifically with them in mind.

My mother is crazy crafty and I started early. I ...
