Djoser is a crescent shaped shawl worked from the bottom up with a two-color lace and bobble border and Stockinette stitch body worked in short rows. While working on this design, I became an armchair
Egyptologist watching documentaries on the pyramids of Egypt. Inspiration for the name came from Djoser, the first pharaoh of Egypt to build a pyramid. With a lace pattern shaped like little pyramids and yarn as blue as the Nile, I couldn't resist using his name for this shawl. Stitch pattern is written and charted.
19 sts and 34 rows = 4" in Stockinette stitch on smaller needles.
Designer note: I am a loose knitter so please check your gauge before starting this project. It may be necessary to go up 1 or 2 needle sizes.
