“Gene Tierney, the Divine” was originally part of The Sanguine Gryphon’s Fall 2011 “Film Noir” pattern collection, and is now available directly from the designer.

Whether in night dress or an evening gown, every woman needs diamonds to distract from her scheming. Well, this shawl has diamonds aplenty. Enough, I would reckon, to conceal the conspiracies of one plot, or maybe twenty. Then perhaps, just perhaps, an X will mark the spot where the murderous heart skips a beat.

Knit in two halves then grafted together in the middle, this shawl easily flows across and off the shoulders. A wide garter stitch border surrounds the stockinette central motifs, providing an elegant and effortless frame for an elegant and effortless piece.

Skill Used: cable cast on, knitting and purling, k2tog, k3tog, k3togtbl, sk2p, ssk, yo, kitchener stitch/grafting, weaving in ends, and blocking lace.

Notions: tapestry needle, waste yarn, US 3/3.25 mm or 4/3.5 mm needle for cast on edges (optional)

Both charts and written stitch directions are included.
