Inspired by my favourite colour combination, and love of stripes and geometric patterning, Flying Duchess is a elongated shawl that can be worn around the shoulders or with the point at the front and the longs arms wrapped around and tied.

Knit from the bottom up, Flying Duchess begins with geometric lace simple enough for an adventurous beginner and interesting enough to keep an accomplished knitter entertained. Simple decreases shape the shawl at the centre and the ends. Knit in DK/8ply weight yarn, this project moves along quickly.

The Flying duchess is a long scarf, see the schematic for full dimesions.
