BEADED ELEGANT WRAP
Kaylee Frye: “The term is ‘companion.’”
Mal: “I always get those mixed up. How’s business?”
Inara: “None of yours.”
Mal: “She is pretty much our ambassador. There’s plenty of planets wouldn’t let ya dock without a decent companion on board.”
The Ambassador is the third design in my Firefly/Serenity series based on the character Inara Serra. It is a long beaded wrap with 4 distinct parts of the design: 1. Beaded and lightly cabled diamonds along the bottom, 2. Beaded lace curly-cues along the sides (simulating the veil she wears in the episode “Trash”), 3. A slipped stitch dense, lightly beaded middle section, and 4. A sideways knitted on lace top edge that corrects the differences in fabric density. Like Inara, the design is elegant, bold, and very sparkly.
The piece can be worn several ways; wrap, shawl, scarf, headscarf, or backless wrapped shirt. It is knit flat from the long bottom edge up, with the top edge knitted on sideways.
