Nefertiti7

Named for the famous Egyptian Queen, Nefertiti. It is rumored that she ruled the Upper and Lower Kingdoms on her own after her husband’s death before her son Tutankhamun took the throne. With her husband she changed the polytheistic religion of Egypt to the worship of one god. This wrap evokes the sheer pleated gowns and serpentine vines found in carvings and artwork of Nefertiti.

The natural bias of the wrap makes it a trapezoid, but can be blocked rectangular.

    I just bought this pattern through Ravelry. I bought some yarn at a house sale today and saw on Ravelry that someone made this shawl using the same amount, color, and brand of yarn I bought. Then I saw the wrap is named Nefertiti and I knew I had to buy it as that’s my cat’s name. I’m not experienced with lace but I hope I will be able to make this at some point. Thanks for the pattern, I was glad to buy it.
