"Orion" a lace scarf

Orion collage2

Orion collage2

Orion was a gigantic, supernaturally strong hunter of ancient times,
born to Euryale, a Gorgon, and Poseidon (Neptune), god of the sea in the
Graeco-Roman tradition. One myth recounts Gaia’s rage at Orion, who
dared to say that he would kill every animal on the planet.
Another beautiful lace scarf in my series of Men lace attire. It is a
unisex item and a timeless piece. It has a strong, yet delicate lines
to appease the muses. Embrace the divine spark within you and wear it
with pride.

This pattern is inspired by the Book Series “A Treasury of Knitting Patterns…” by Barbara G. Walker.

Pattern Notes:

You have the option of following the written instructions or using
the charts for this pattern. You will always have 43 stitches, keep that
in mind. If you substitute the yarn, you must make a swatch and blocked
it. This yarn is 70% wool and 30 %Linen. This yarn is from a felted
family of yarns. The linen here is visible, and creates a striated look
that will knit into a tweedy marled fabric. Like all linen blends, this
strong fiber will get softer with use. It does have a nice drape. This
yarn when blocked keeps it’s shape, and does not shrink. The pattern
repeats are 10 sts, so you can make it wider or with less repeats.

I have taken a lot of care to personally test the instructions and
the charts and found it to be free of mistakes. I was assisted in the
design and creation of these charts by Intwined Studio Software. If you
find a mistake, feel free to contact me.

Thanks for your patronage and feel free to email me if you have any questions. Enjoy!
