New Pattern Release: Mezair

Introducing my latest pattern: Mezair!


Pattern: Mezair

DesignerRachel Henry (that’s me!)

Available: on Ravelry — $6 for the individual pattern, or $12 for the collection (special price, for a limited time)

Yarn: Knittink Batgirl (“Atlanteans #3”)

Beads: 224 size 6/0 seed beads, AB finish



Design/Skills Needed:

This crescent-shaped shawlette begins with working the beaded lace edging sideways. All beads are pre-strung before knitting begins – no loose beads or tiny crochet hooks! The short-row body is worked from picked-up stitches. More lace finishes the top border of the shawlette, echoing the motifs from the bottom edging.

Mezair 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 “Levade” (bottom-up, heart-shaped, lace).



Cast-on Monday: Mezair Prototype (AATG #3), Circlet for S.

I asked my friend’s daughter (who is three) if she would like a knitted crown.  Via facebook, naturally.

Me: S, would you like a crown? If so, please tell me what color(s) you like, and how big around your head is.

S. (with help from her mom): S. says, yes, pink, and 19.5 inches. (She acknowledges that she could accept purple maybe if you don’t have any pink yarn handy.) Thanks!

So, I am making a Very Pink Circlet.  It’s a quick knit, very satisfying — great design.

In other news, I have designed and cast on for the third shawlette in the Airs Above the Ground series.  This one is very, very pretty so far! Beads make everything better, don’t you think?
