American Brilliant Throw

American Brilliant Designed by Sharon Winsauer and Conceived and Inspired by Pat Richey

This throw, American Brilliant, is a convergence of two time honored, creative skills, knitting and cutting glass. It was inspired by Pat’s collection of American Brilliant Cut Glass, with each block design based on a glass motif.

The blocks are each knit separately, then sewn together. The pattern is a combination of charts and written directions.

Please note: If you do NOT respect the copy-right and share the pattern with others, The Heere be Dragone will fly in and tangle all your stash and eat all your chocolate.

I have been knitting for more years than I care to count. Long haired dogs inspired me to learned to spin in 1996 with a drop spindle. Spinning introduced me to alpacas and I fell in love. Hand spun yarn from our black alpaca demanded to be lace, so I tried my hand at designing in 1998. Lace has become my passion. My designs are quite unique, including many ‘picture’ shawls such as Heere Be Dragone as well as more traditional styles. I have over 40 published lace patterns all unique in style and design.
