  1. New Pattern! Paper Lanterns Shawl

    Posted on

    My new shawl pattern 'Paper Lanterns' is now available on Ravelry and on the website Here

    About this Pattern

    Even the greyest day becomes a celebration when you wear your Paper Lanterns shawl! The asymmetric triangle features stripes of tiny lanterns dancing across it. The shawl can be worked in just two colours or as many as you’d like. Choose a bright and bold or soft and subtle colour palette to suit your style. This is also a great chance to use up bits of leftover yarn. 

    The shawl is worked by alternating colours every 4 rows, so you are only dealing with one colour at a time. The easy-to-work, easy-to-memorize dip stitch is fun to work and you don’t have to worry about weaving in the ends for each stripe; they each get their own bit of fringe along the edge!

    Video tutorials are provided for all stitches used, including working the 4 rows of the Dip Stitch pattern and for making the tassels at the end.

    I had some fantastic testers for this shawl and we had lot's of fun choosing colours and combinations for the pattern. Tests were knit in a range of 2 colours to too many to count! Thank you Anna, Christina, Clau, Dari, Debbie, Denise, Jo and Frauke for bringing the pattern to life. Here are some of the shawls from the test knit.

  2. New Pattern! Meet Me at the Station Shawl

    Posted on

    My new shawl pattern Meet Me at the Station is now available on Ravelry and here on the website >>HERE<<



    Meet Me at the Station was inspired by a wooden canopy at the local train station. With pointed edges and cut out vertical lines it got me thinking about a design that would be the perfect accessory for the everyday commute or train trip.



    This shawl pattern is designed to use 1 skein of 100g / 425m of 4ply sock yarn and the pattern is easy to work with a stockinette body and a simple lace section completing the border. The picot edges are created naturally by the lace stitch pattern, although pinning them out whilst blocking at the end is highly recommended as this will really open them out.
     
    This pattern works beautifully in a solid, or semi-solid yarn as it lets the lace pattern take centre stage. However, you could knit the stockinette body section in a variegated yarn and then switch to a solid colour for the lace as some of my testers did, see the pictures below. Instructions are provided on how to adjust the depth of the stockinette body and / or the lace section so you can customise the design and make it your own.

    The shawl was test knit by a wonderful group of testers, a big thank you to Jo, Bonny, Anne, Clau, Maya and Tammy. I really enjoyed seeing your versions come to life! And a big thank you to Allison at Kniterations for tech editing the pattern.



    Meet Me at the Station is a quick and easy-to-remember pattern, making it ideal for gifts, or why not knit up a few in different colours. It’s the ideal accessory to grab as you run out of the door this winter!
