Cretaceous is a rather simple shawl, made interesting by an unusual construction. The different knitting directions are perfect to showcase interesting yarns. You can also knit it in one colour with great results.
It is a small shawl that feels like a nice hug due to its elasticity – obtained from the garter stitch and the knitting direction of the body.

My shawl is now blocked and the testers are at work. Here are a few pictures I took of it.
Yesterday, I was posting a little sneak peek at my latest pattern, Cretaceous. Well, it’s now ready and being tested and should be published in a couple of weeks. It’s a two-colour shawl with an unusual construction.
I don’t have great pictures just yet as it is currently blocking, but here’s a little look at it:
I’m working on a new design, here’s a little sneak peek, I love that brown yarn, it’s very yummy!
I decided to sell 4 of my shawl patterns as a set, The Shawl Collection. It is composed of the Ederra Shawlette, the Sunkissed Shawl, Twirly Wrap and the Agate Capelet.
The set costs $10.00
This pattern is available in English and German
Deutsche Anleitung sind auch dabei!
A simple shawlette, knit sideways. It can also be used as a scarf.
I designed it to use only one skein of sock yarn. It is an easy knit with a simple cable border, perfect for cable beginners.
Instructions are also given to knit it with less than a skein by using exactly the amount of yarn available.
This pattern will work well with all kinds of yarn: plain, variegated or striped.
