Caladan is the stormy and windswept ocean home world of House Atreides; the watery and wavy elements of this crescent shaped shawl were designed to evoke these images, with some beautiful beads added in for fun. It is particularly well suited to watery colored variegated yarns, not to say that it wouldn’t look fabulous in other colors!
Caladan is the fifth shawl in my Dune series of crescent shaped shawls inspired by the House Atreides. It requires intermediate knitting skills including wrong side patterning, beading, and complex decreases. Experienced lace knitters will find enough to keep them interested and beginning lace knitters will probably find it a challenge.
A note on materials: Instructions are provided completely written out, with a chart option for the bulk of the lacework. You will need 4 stitch markers, 400 size 6/0 beads and a crochet hook of appropriate size to apply the beads (I used a #8) to complete this piece.
