If you've never knit lace before, it can seem a bit overwhelming. Don't worry about getting lost, Atlantis is the perfect way to get a feel for the exciting world of lace knitting. The stitches ebb and flow like an underwater landscape with the traditional Shetland wave edging knit on at each end. Worked in fingering weight yarn instead of laceweight, it's easier for new laceknitters to get a feel for the stitches and charts without adjusting to a tiny, threadlike yarn. A repetitive lace pattern becomes intuitive to knit and works up quickly, building confidence and a desire to continue to explore the world of lace.
Experienced knitters will find that Atlantis is perfect for a quick project or to make as a gift. Due to the simple lace pattern, Atlantis will work well with the more multicolored or hand dyed yarns that tend to overwhelm more intricate lace stitchwork. Notes are included on adjustments for those who wish to knit it in laceweight yarn or downsize the stole to a scarf.
Stitch patterns are given both in charted and text format, and if you've never knit from a chart, there is a Chart Tutorial included at the end of the pattern to help you transition from text to charts.

Come get lost in the world of knitted lace!

Finished size as shown: 20 inches wide x 72 inches long
Shown in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Geisha in the Raven Clan Rook-y colorway on the left, and in Rowan Kid Silk Haze in the Trance colorway on the right.
  • Requires 750 yards/ 686 meters fingering weight yarn
  • Size 7 or 8 US (4.5-5.0 mm) needles

I would also like to express my thanks to my mother, Georgina Bow, for knitting the Kid Silk Haze version of this design as shown above.

I bought the pattern and have now started it and ripped it out 9 times. I don't know what I am doing wrong, but I keep loosing stitches. It's so beautiful but I have had to put it up for awhile.

I must admit that this is one great insight. It surely gives a company the opportunity to get in on the ground floor and really take part in creating something special and tailored to their needs. Agen Sbobet 338A
