Ikaria is a Greek island located in the Aegean Sea, not far away from the Asia Minor coasts. It takes is name from Icarus. It is worked top –down from the neck. You start with garter rows punctuated by two rows of elongated stitches. Then the work continues with lace bands the pattern of which is addictive and easy to memorize. The scalloped edging is worked with German short rows. You will use two strands of wool throughout the work: a strand of lace and a strand of mohair kid silk.
