Nefertem

A girl's gotta knit while the knitting bug bites and so I have another finished knit - just off the needles.


Nefertem
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.

020 (2)

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,
Rita

  8. Beautiful Shawl, I always love Kirsten's patterns! I'm a knitter, and though I love seeing your beautiful quilts, having a gorgeous knit like this pop up once in a while is always a thrill!

  9. I thought I was the only one who knitted right and crocheted left! Also golf right, curl (that wierd game on ice that Canadians play) left, right-handed scissors but in my left hand. I write with my left hand - I guess that makes me left-handed to most people :). Beautiful shawl - will watch for the pattern - already have something in my stash I think will be suitable.
    Haven't knitted in eons, but just pulled something out yesterday - must be something in the air.

  12. That is a beautiful shawl. I have one in my mind - using my own hand dyed cotton thread and forming a triangle shawl using a pattern from my 'encyclopedia' of knitted patterns. I just need to figure out which colorway to use for the shawl. It has to be extra special, right?

  19. Beautiful - love to see the knitting as well as the quilting - but, I don't see how you can possibly accomplish as much as you do. Amazing.
