Rochelle's Lyra

Rochelle Ribeiro of Toronto, Ontario, Canada is another Lyra knitter who's completed the journey!

Here we see the corner of her square version of the Lyra. As with most of the other Lyras, the area of binding at the third set of leaves is visible; just to reiterate, this is a pattern flaw, not the knitter's error!

Many of us who have knit the Lyra, as well as visitors to this blog, have noticed that the Lyra is not the only Niebling pattern that seems to have a similar "flaw".

Rochelle's appears to have been knit in cotton. She has done a wonderful job, too!
I will pester her for more information on material
and thread, as well as her thoughts and reflections
on the project.

Rochelle's completed Lyra below.
Beautiful knitting, Rochelle!

Rochelle did a beautiful job! She's a great designer, too.
I would love to knit that but I need to purchase the pattern first.
Again, would love to!

I would like to give it a try too but unforutnately I do not have the pattern. I would be very grateful if someone could share the pattern if it not too much to ask

I'm just diving in to knitting my first Neibling (Lyra). Can someone explain the number 3 in the 11th row? There are no lines around any other stitches on the row (so it doesn't appear to be a repeat). What I have on my pattern is:Kfbl, YO, K2tog, YO, 3, YO, take 2 tog, YO.

Can anyone help? THANK YOU!!
