This pattern is available individually and as part of the Myths and Fairytales eBook.
A beautiful crescent shaped lace shawl named for Kisseis, the Lady of the Ivy. She is one of the Nysiades, nymphs of Mount Nysa, in Greek Mythology and caretaker of the young god Dionysus. Iridescent glass beads shimmer like dew in the sun on large ivy leaves. The shape helps the shawl stay secure on your shoulders and the large wingspan makes it great for wearing as a scarf.
This shawl is worked from the top down, with varying increases every right side row. It begins with a garter stitch tab using a provisional cast on. To change the size of the shawl, repeats may be added or subtracted.
Since the charts are quite large they are spread over two
pages for ease of reading and printing. A separate pdf of the charts is included, for ease of reading on your computer or other electronic device. Photo tutorials are linked in each applicable section for beading and working the double yarn overs on the wrong side.
