Nefertem Shawl
Introducing Nefertem. Previously exclusive to the Loopy Ewe the pattern is now available as a PDF to everyone. Named for the Egyptian god of beauty and healing,  Nefertem is worked from the center top edge and increased outward to create the semi-circular shape. The border is adorned with lace that features a lotus motif and a delicate scalloped edge. The lotus flower is common in ancient Egyptian art. The god Nefertem is usually depicted wearing a lotus headdress.

Nefertem Wrapped
This small, semi-circular shawl has been a favorite of mine since I first designed it for the Loopy Ewe sock club last year. I have had many requests for the shawl pattern as a PDF and I am happy to say that the exclusivity period has ended.

The body of the shawl is worked in easy-peasy stockinette, then just when you think you've had enough of the mindlessness that is our beloved stockinette you get to launch into a tricky bit of lace. The 24 row lace pattern gives a delicate touch to the shawl followed by a simple crochet bind off. Even for those of you who are not familiar with crochet this bind off should be easy and is explained in the pattern.
