Devil's mistress is a top-down small shawl with a garter stitch body and a very easy lace portion. The design features 2 options: the first one is a ruffly picot bind off and the second one is a beautiful vintage attached edging that looks more complicated than it really is.
The picot bind off option can be made out of a standard 420 yds skein.
The attached edging version requires more yardage and can be made out of 460 yds of fingering weight yarn.
The name of this shawl is a conjunction of 2 things: the lace portion of the shawl is based on a stitch pattern named "Point de Diable" or Devil's stitch, and comes from my favorite old French stitchionary.
The second thing is that I actually worked on this whole shawl watching the 4 episodes of "The Devil?s mistress", an English Civil War mini-series. I was really in love with this historic mini-series and I decided to give it the name of the shawl, particularly with the idea that the 2 options makes a bit of the dichotomous way the main character lead her life: a rich looking version with a lace edging and a rough, rustic looking version with the picot bind off.
