Eirene is the Greek goddess of peace. My grandmother, of the same name, was an incredibly peaceful, charming, sweet and very funny lady. Sweet Eirene was created in her memory.

This is a comfortable first lace project for newcomers to lace knitting, and interesting enough for more experienced knitters.

The crescent shawl is written in two different sizes and was knit in two yarn weights. It is worked using the following stitches: knit, purl, k2tog, p2tog, p3tog, ssk, yarn over, and a central double decrease, plus, a super easy short row method.

Whichever version you choose I hope you enjoy knitting Sweet Eirene as much as I enjoyed creating it!
