Free Pattern Friday: Antigone

June 24, 2016

This one is for all of you crocheters out there!  Antigone is a feminine lacey shawl made modern by using Berroco Mykonos.   Isn't this stunning?


Mykonos quickly became a staff and customer favorite since it was introduced this past spring.  The unique blend of linen, nylon and cotton works up so beautifully and has an amazing drape.  The core-wrapped tubular construction and the subtle sheen gives this yarn a clean, modern look.  You'll love the color choices!

Antigone calls for six skeins of Mykonos (shown in color #8556, Zeus) and a 3.75mm/F hook.

Because Mykonos is so soft and slinky, weaving in ends can be a little tricky. Amy Christoffers from the Berroco Design Team has provided a few tips for weaving in the ends. 

"With any non-felting yarn (plant fibers, rayon, viscose, as well as superwash wool and silk) the best thing is to try to join new balls at the seam edge of a garment when ever possible. This will allow you to hide ends in the seam, making easy work of weaving them in. It is a good idea to leave yourself a little extra length on the end of a slippery yarn—aim for at leans 8″. Choose a sharp-tipped sewing needle with a large enough eye for the yarn and weave in as you would any other yarn, working up and down the seam stitch, sewing right through the middle of the yarn every few sts to anchor the end."
