Princess Leia :: a rebel, a role model, an icon. On December 27, 2016, the world lost Carrie Fisher. This shawl was created as a tribute to her memory as Princess Leia from Star Wars. To the Lost Princess :: Rebel One is a crescent-shaped whimsical lace shawl inspired by Princess Leia from Star Wars, knit using the one-color brioche stitch. Stay tuned for Rebel Two, which will be the same shawl knit using the two-color brioche stitch. Skill level: Intermediate. Basic brioche skills are not required, but are recommended. Techniques used for Rebel One: knit, brioche knit (brk), brioche increases and decreases. This cresent-shaped shawl is knit from center back down, with increases along the edges. Using a combination of radical increases and decreases, small brioche bobbles are created to adorn the top edging. The shawl is finished with a dramatic lace border, utilizing the same radical increases and decreases that were used for the edging, but in a more intricate way. The brioche lace was all inspired by Princess Leia’s iconic hairdo, the Rebel symbol, and galactic ships from Star Wars. This pattern is both written and charted, for your convenience!
