Wacky Wednesday: How Do Dinosaurs Wear Their Knitting?

 

A Hundred Ravens can be found at the Wayland Winter Farmers’ Market most Saturdays! Snugged in amongst the plants and, um, garden decorations you will find a wide variety of delicious local food and other neat stuff.  Kate sells hard copies of many of my patterns, and has lovely samples worked up in her yarn.  The butter-yellow Levade in Llyr is one of my favorites.

 

But.

 

It’s even better on a dinosaur.

(The raptor  is a yard ornament. That you can buy. To put in your yard. And terrify people.)

Design/Skills Needed:

Levade is a heart-shaped shawl worked from the bottom edge up. Beginning with a very long cast-on edge, the lace swoops through alternating waves, leaves, and medallion motifs. The faster-than-usual decreases create a beautiful shape that clings well to shoulders.

Levade is part of the Airs Above the Ground Collection. Each of four shawlettes in the collection can be made with a single skein of fingering-weight yarn. Look for “Courbette” (sideways, modular, crescent-shaped, lace), “Capriole” (top-down, semi-circular, lace), and “Mezair” (lace border worked sideways, crescent-shaped, short-row body).
