We interrupt the games to bring you......





Persian Princess

BadCat Designs and Gossamer Web teamed up to bring you Persian Princess, and a prettier shawl is not to be seen gracing the snow that lingers through my personal Olympic Games.

Stats:

Pattern : Persian Princess from BadCat Designs (either buy on Rav or get free with yarn purchase at The Gossamer Web, and you will love the yarn so go on you know you want to!)
Yarn: Love Potion #3 in Tealish
Needles: Size 1 US circular needles
Beads : Size 10 clear glass seed beads, Size 8 AB silver lined glass seed beads

If you look at the bottom picture you can barely see the red provisional cast on yarn. This piece is knit from those few stitches at the bottom of the triangle to the top, without breaking the yarn stitches are picked up down the long sides of the triangle and then back to the top once the sides are cast off for an elegant top edging. Only two ends to weave in!!

As usual, Andrea provides full charts and extensive starting and finishing instructions along with fabulous pictures of her Persian Princess blocking, on a model and close in so you can see how the beads she used match the yarn perfectly.

Love Potion #3 is a lace knitters dream and this project takes about half of a skein so I have plenty left over to knit something else.

Great work but you and Andrea are very wicked to dangle such temptation in front of me!
