Arcus

16 Jul

Arcus is an unusually shaped shawl. I designed it especially for sock yarns with long colour repeats and these are the yarns, which will work best with this design. The top of the shawl is V shaped so that the sides will sit on the shoulders comfortably, without sliding down.

Sunkissed by pooki. Beautiful colour combination.

Shawl Pattern: Mela

5 Jun

This pattern is for any yarn, any gauge. Just choose your yarn and needles and follow the instructions.

Mela is an easy to knit garter stitch shawl, made interesting by an unusual asymmetrical construction. The different knitting directions are perfect to showcase interesting yarns. This pattern is for any yarn, any gauge but will work best with a yarn with long colour repeats. A variegated yarn will also work well and could be used for the body, with a plain yarn for section 4 for instance.
