Pattern Description:

A companion shawl to Alia, Lady Jessica is a sport weight shawl that is little snugglier than a fingering weight shawl while avoiding the weight of worsted.

Falling somewhere in between Alia and Atreides in complexity, Lady Jessica utilizes the same winged crescent construction as the other shawls in the Dune series. There is no work to be done in the lace on the wrong side rows, until you reach the lace trim, so once you have the hang of the lace motif it should be smooth sailing. The added interest in the trim moves this shawl into an intermediate skill set.

As with my other shawls, there are two size options; but instead of simply adding repeats to create a larger shawl I have enlarged the main lace motif and trim so that they have the same visual presence and balance as the smaller shawl.

The instructions are primarily written, with a chart option for the lace trim.

Lady Jessica is being released with a companion shawl, Alia. When I was designing Alia my goal was a simple shawl - but it kept trying to get more complicated. I finally gave up and made notes for the modifications and created the second shawl. If you like the look of this but wish it was a bit easier - check out Alia.

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 ...
