Rebel Two Kit - Autographed Pattern with Hey Lady Hey Yarns
Princess Leia :: a rebel, a role model, an icon.
On December 27, 2016, the world lost Carrie Fisher. This shawl was created as a tribute to her memory as Princess Leia from Star Wars.
To the Lost Princess :: Rebel is a crescent-shaped whimsical lace shawl inspired by Princess Leia from Star Wars. Rebel One is knit using the one-color brioche stitch. Rebel Two is the same shawl pattern, knit using the two-color brioche stitch.
Skill level: Intermediate. Basic brioche skills are not required, but are recommended. Techniques used: knit, purl, brioche knit (brk), brioche purl (brp), brioche increases and decreases. This crescent-shaped shawl is knit from center back down, with increases along the edges. Using a combination of radical increases and decreases, small brioche bobbles are created to adorn the top edging. The shawl is finished with a dramatic lace border, utilizing the same radical increases and decreases that were used for the edging, but in a more intricate way. The brioche lace was all inspired by Princess Leia’s iconic hairdo, the Rebel symbol, and galactic ships from Star Wars.
