Deirdre is the second pattern in the Ladies of Legend Collection.

“There stands upon an open field, two yew trees that grew towards and entwined around each other.

Each tree serves as a marker. A reminder of a love so great that even death cannot separate it…”

Deirdre is a triangular shaped shawl worked from one point and extended out. Wide cables are maintained along both sides of Deirdre. The main body of Deirdre features a lace leaf pattern which grows out as the shawl is knit.
