The Three Graces

 

Happy Mother's Day! I hope everyone is having a special day with their families.

Three Graces Cover

The Three Graces ebook. Three Original Shawl Designs.

Price: $16.50 US

If you're looking for a little treat for yourself or are itching to cast on a new project, I've just published my new ebook, The Three Graces. The ebook contains three semi-circular, lace shawl patterns. Each starts at the top edge with a garter tab, and is worked downward to the bottom edge. The similarities end there. Algaea, Euphrosyne & Thalia each have their own personalities.

Aglaea

Aglaea starts with columns of eyelets and explodes into an array of cables and lace.

Aglaea 3

It is worked on US 8 (5 mm) needles and uses about 700 yards of fingering weight yarn. I used Three Waters Farm Superwash Merino Fingering in the Avacado colorway. For more photos and information see the Aglaea pattern page on Ravelry.

Euphrosyne, the cover shawl from the book is a bit more sedate. The body of the shawl is composed of a leaf lace pattern, while the delicate edging is knitted onto the live stitches at the end.

Euphrosyne is worked on US 7 (4.5 mm) needles and takes about 625 yards of laceweight yarn. I used Fearless Fibers Laceweight Merino in Daydream. Sadly this lovely color is discontinued, but I suspect you will have no problem finding a color that suits you from her spectacular range of offerings. For more photos and information see the Euphrosyne pattern page on Ravelry.

Thalia Close

Playful Thalia starts with a body of eyelets created with double yarn overs. Just when you've had enough of all of those double wraps, it's time for the sweet, leafy border. The bind off gives a looped edge that echos the eyelets and adds a delicate touch to the shawl.

Yellow Shawl

Thalia is worked on US 7 (4.5 mm) needles and takes about 450 yards of light fingering weight yarn. I used Anzula Cloud in Ducky (heh, love that name). I'm currently knitting a second Thalia in two colors. I hope to have photos to show you of that one in about a week. For more photos and information see the Thalia pattern page on Ravelry.

Gorgeous as always, Kirsten. More to add to my queue.

These are gorgeous!

Honestly, Kirsten - do you design anything I don't love? :) Another set of gorgeous shawls!!!

Beautiful shawls! Thalia is my favorite due to all those eyelets.

Lovely! I can't pick a favorite.
