Iznik, Turkey was the place to be in ceramics, from the late 15th century throughout the 16th. It was a time of experimentation and incorporation of luxurious things. Ceramic glazes were transformed in composition and colour beginning with simple blues to turquoise, jade, and finally reds and oranges. The hand painted images were drawn from their own culture and the peoples they traded with. Often geometric or flora, the intricate and delicate images added meaning and poetry to domestic homes and structures…The oval and floral motifs of Iznik ceramics guided my hand to design this lacy and beaded heart shaped shawl. Craftspeople of Iznik, I heart you…and thank you.

This is a heart-shaped shawl knit from the top down. The stitches are fairly simple and it’s a good knit for a beginner to lace, however there are many beads (~ 1500).

Iznik, en Turquie, etait le centre pour la ceramique entre le XV eme et XVIeme siecle. C’etait une
periode d’experimentation et d’incorporation d’objets somptueux. Les glacures furent transformees dans
la composition et les bleus et blancs d’influences chinoises evoluerent bientot vers le turquoise, jade, et
finallement rouges et oranges. Les images paintent a la main etaient issues de la culture locale ainsi
que celles des peuples avec qui les habitants commercaient. Souvent de nature geometrique ou
florale, les images complexes et delicates ajoutaient du symbolisme et de la poesie aux maisons et batiments…
Les motifs ovales et floraux de la ceramique d’Iznik guiderent mes mains lors de la creation de ce chale en forme de coeur plein de dentelle et de perles. Artisans d’Iznik, je vous aimes… et merci.

Ce chale en forme de coeur est tricote de haut en bas. Les mailles sont assez simples et c’est un bon projet pour les debutants qui commencent la dentelle. Il y a,cependant, beaucoup de perles (~1500)!
