Treat yourself to a luxury crescent shaped shawl in precious mohair and silk that stands out with a dramatic color combination and unusual details. You wonder about the name? The colors remindend me of the necklesses the old pharaos wore, so I borrowed the name of the legendary lady pharao Hatschepsut. I am sure she would have loved the shawl – desert nights can be very chilly! You would prefer other colors? Please have a look at the pictures – there are other color combinations in the picture gallery!
Please mind: I developed this pattern exclusively for mohair lace yarn. There are irregular increases that remain invisible in mohair, but the increases may show in a smooth yarn. Your yarn should have a halo.
Skill level medium. The shawl is rather easy to knit, but the mohair yarn is a challenge due to the fact that you have a very hard time when you want to unravel it. It might be too much of a challenge for a beginner.
