Kate Atherley Rosetta Tharpe PDF
Named for Rosetta Tharpe, the Godmother of Rock & Roll, this shawl designed by Kate Atherley is like Ms. Tharpe—classic in origin and inspiration, drawing on simple elements, but coming together in way that’s both elegant and awesome at the same time. This shawl is based on the circular Pi shaping and starts at the center with a few stitches before increasing into progressively larger rounds. The edging stitch pattern is flexible: work until you’ve run out of yarn, or the shawl is the size you want, or you just can’t wait to wear the thing. The project requires only basic lace knitting skills and is worked entirely in the round from the center out. Lace patterns are both charted and written out.
