The dramatic, iconic PHOENIX has been the symbol of strength and majesty since the dawn of time; the native American Indians, Germany, the Roman Empire and Egypt just to mention a few.
Fear not the lace or the beading. This amazing garment is knitted using only two stitches, knit and purl. Everyone has made yarn overs whether intentionally or not. Choose a lace weight or a very light fingering yarn.
Go forward, knit, design and wear this is a statement piece remembering the strength, protection and power of those who wore the symbol of the PHOENIX.
I blocked mine pretty aggressively, so the final measurements on mine are: 36” deep (neckline to bottom) and 60” wide (closer to the top edge). Not including the fringe.

I recently purchased this through your company. I am very pleased with the response and followup by you. Thanks so much. The personal touch was appreciated!
I am very excited about this pattern and plan on knitting it as an entry in our local 2017 county fair or maybe our state fair. Time will tell. If I am ever able to attend another Stitches Event, I want to actually show it off there as well. Love the people at The Buffalo Wool Company as they have been wonderful on more than one occasion for me. I’ll submit photos upon completion.
