Valentina is the second new design I created for my Mastering Lace Knitting Retreat. The third one will be published next week.
Valentina is a crescent shape and is worked from the top down. I recommend starting with a Garter Tab but that's not essential. You can just cast on and knit one row before commencing the pattern but a Garter Tab definitely looks better.
Increases along the edges on every other row creates a wide crescent shape. Perfect to wrap around your neck several times. Beads are added for a bit of extra bling. Valentina is perfect to wear over an evening dress or around your neck as a scarf on a chilly day. Valentina is knitted in 6 Karat which is a merino/silk blend heavy lace yarn with 600m per 100g.
Valentina is 25% off until 9 November 2015. No coupon code needed.
On Friday I'm teaching a Crescent Shawls workshop at Social Fabric and in that class you'll learn to create this and several other crescent shapes.
