This lace jacket is from a pattern in Vogue Knitting Sp/Summer 2010. I used 3
skeins of Beaded Mohair and Sequins Gold. It was made for a benefit to raise money for our local art guild that is renovating and old theatre. I wore it to the benefit and they auctioned it right ‘off my back’.
This regal design combines both the needle art forms of knitting and crochet. It was inspired by the movie Braveheart and the very lovely period head piece worn by Princess Isabella (Sophie Marceau). Made from 4 balls of 100% French Angora from fabulousyarn.com, a crocheted band anchors the piece.
It is adorned with a knitted braid that falls into netted coifs on either side of the face. A silk scarf is draped and anchored around the face ending at the back of the pearl encrusted tiara with the end hanging free. A knitted attached snood with metallic eyelash trim completes the look. Measures 12.5“ in circumference at the top edge and 16“ long (unstretched). My pattern will be available soon at:
