(6) Name: 'Knitting : Laodice

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit
  • Purl
  • Increase
  • Decrease

Pattern Description:

Laodice, daughter of King Agamemnon and Queen Clytemnestra, would have loved this easy shawlette. Ancient Greek castles can be quite drafty, just like Spring and Summer evenings.

This piece is designed to make you feel like a Queen in your own castle, regardless of the season.

If you make it as written, no office air conditioning or cool breezes will make you uncomfortable. Need something more substantial for your next wintry conquest? Use a heavier yarn and needles to match. Like scarves? Don't block it wide. Shawls more your thing? Be aggressive and stretch it to your whims.

Taking control has never been so beautiful.


Laodice is fully customizable to any weight and yardage of yarn.

Includes charts as well as written directions.


32 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette, knit flat
