Rose of Avalon
My latest design, made using Deramores Studio Double Knitting.
The myth and legend of King Arthur and the Isle of Avalon is something that has
always fascinated me. Avalon is said to be the final resting place of King Arthur, a
mystical island, in the middle of a lake.
Guinevere was Arthur’s Queen, a fair and just Queen who loved the people of Camelot.
The Lady of the Lake, is said to have been the keeper of Excalibur, King Arthur’s
Igraine was Arthur’s mother, Morgana was Arthur’s half sister, and also said to have been a Fairy Queen, or a Sorceress, depending on which story you like to believe.
Isolde was the lover of Tristan, one of the knights of the round table.
I hope you get swept away in magical moments as you make this beautiful throw.
There is also a yarn pack that you can purchase for £24.99, using exactly the same colours as I did.
The Rose of Avalon Blanket pack contains 14 x 100g balls of Deramores Studio DK yarn, including:
4 balls each in Mist and Wine
3 balls in Topaz
1 ball each of Rose, Peridot and Citrine.
New yarn packs.
There are two new colour ways now available to purchase from Deramores.

I used a 4.5mm hook, as Studio DK is slightly thicker than most DK yarns.
Finished size is approx 52 inches square/ 132 cm.
It is a gorgeous yarn to work with, so soft and smooth, with a beautiful drape when finished.
This is a yarn that I will be working with many more times in the future.
The pattern is a photo tutorial, with full instructions for all of the squares, how to join them, and the border.
Though the throw is square, it would be very easy to add more panels of squares to make it rectangular, or a much bigger square.
If you choose to go larger you will of course need more yarn though, as the pack contains enough to make the size shown.
