9. How wack-o my brain is!
Wondering about the construction of Ducenti?
It is knit in 3 parts which I broke into 4 clues.
1. A long strip is worked with 2 attached beaded I-cords that have short row “eyes” in between them.
2. An edging is worked along cast on edge of this long strip.
3. A second long strip is made as above (without the edging).
4. The two strips are joined together by a lace mesh center connector. This connector starts out narrow and gets wider as the repeats are worked. If you want a shawl that isn’t asymmetrical all you have to do is work the same number of sts for the center connector.
Kelli from Colorado made a third strip and then mirror the lace connector on the other side turning Ducenti into a rectangle! She also added the attached beaded i-cord to each edge, which finishes it off beautifully!
she changed their direction in even sections....
a crescent shaped shawl.... what a simple and effective idea!
rectangular shaped Ducenti!
