New Pattern: Eris

As I said in my previous post, I’ve recently released a new e-book called Stargazing: 2014.  It includes 5 beautiful patterns, including We Are But Stardust.  Within the next few days I’m going to be writing about these new patterns to give you an idea of what went into creating them.  As I’ve said, this collection was created during a very dark time in my life, but I’ve always had a deep love and curiosity regarding the stars and the universe as a whole, so creating this collection was very healing to me.

Todays feature pattern is the all new, beautifully simple, Eris shawl.  You can purchase the Eris pattern for $3 on Ravelry on it’s own, or as part of the Stargazing: 2014 collection for $12.

Eris is knit using a single skein of Malabrigo Rastita, which is a single-ply DK weight yarn.  Each skein is 310 yards of 100% Merino wool, hand dyed  goodness.

The lace is an easy to remember pattern, and the bobbles on the edge provide just the right amount of surface texture.

According to Wikipedia: Eris, the 10th planet in our solar system, is the most massive known dwarf planet in our solar system.  It is named after the Greek goddess Eris, a personification of strife and discord.
