I am excited to announce my first ever pattern published in Twist Collective: Antares. To name this design I once again found a flower name. Antares are brilliant red night-blooming water lily, which is perfect… I originally swatched this design with red yarn, and the beautiful Estonian stitch pattern that I used is called water lily. See? Perfect.

Antares is a triangular shawl that is worked from the top down, beginning with a tab cast on, and is shaped with increases worked on right side rows at both ends and on either side of the center stitch. Lace stitch grows out of the garter stitch rows that form the top of the shawl. Shawl is finished with a delicate beaded border.
