The Lion Tamer are a sideways knitted shawl that starts with knitting the garter body. While working the body you will continuously put stitches on scrap yarn and these are the sts that afterwards are used to knit the border. This way you don’t have to bind of a bunch of sts to after a while pick them up again, and no seaming is needed. This is the fifth pattern in my circus collection - Join Circus Eddy - and I really hope you will enjoy it as much as I.

Pattern uses a total yardage of:
Main Color (orange): 230 yards / 210 meter
Contrasting Color (purple): 201 yards / 185 meter

The Lion Tamer and Ringmaster has the same shawl body but uses totally different techniques for the border. Which one is your favorite?

For the border a photo tutorial are provided and the pattern is available in both english and swedish.
