Introducing Pandora

I'm so proud to introduce Pandora to you. This circular beauty was started at the beginning of the year and I had a few hick ups along the way. At one point I ripped out about 80% of the shawl and started again. But it's finally ready for you to enjoy. And isn't she beautiful?

Pandora is worked from the centre out and starts with a beautiful, antique flower pattern which I found in an old lace book. Older books don't always have the easiest charts to follow and I had to interpret this one to make it work. But I love the result. 

After the circular flower in the centre, the shawl changes into a hexagon shape. Pandora is worked in the round and you can just use a regular cast on and join to work in the round but if you use Emily Ocker's circular cast on or the disappearing loop cast on (both have photo tutorials in my book, Beaded Lace Knitting Amazon affiliate link). But you can also find countless tutorials online including video tutorials on You Tube. Just search for the cast on names.

Pandora is the fifth and final shawl in The Between The Lines collection. If you've already purchased the collection, you will have automatically received the link to download the pattern. If you would like to purchase the collection, you can do so at £10 (plus your local VAT if you're in the EU).

The Between The Lines collection has five shawls which all use two skeins of sock yarn in different colours. The yarn for Pandora is slightly finer than the other sock yarns at 533m per 100g skein. I used Kettle Yarn Co Westminster which is a beautiful blend of baby camel and silk and creates a luxurious, soft, silky fabric with amazing drape. I'm looking forward to wrapping myself up in Pandora this winter.

To celebrate the completion of The Between the Lines Collection, you can purchase the collection for 10% off until end of August 2015. Use code: Pandora.
