Pattern by Kristen Kapur
This shawl/scarf is Nefertem by Kristen Kapur from Through the Loops Designs. Nefertem is a quick knit, suitable for a beginner to intermediate lace knitter. The pattern is currently only available as a pattern/yarn kit combination from The Loopy Ewe, but is scheduled for release as a pattern only purchase in October 2011.
The yarn (as part of the kit) is Madelinetosh Sock in the colorway Midnight Rendevous (a little more purple in color than I would normally choose).
The pattern is well written and I encountered little difficulty until the crochet bind-off. I am a standard right-handed knitter but very much a left-handed crocheter and it required a little juggling of the knitting needles and the crochet hook to combine the two.
All the details of this project are available on Ravelry here: Nefertem.
Thank you for stopping by,
