When light hits prism-like quartz crystals, the colours that are refracted are many and varied. Inspired by the variations of colour found in amethyst, Allira is the first of the Chroma Collection patterns to be released. With yarn and size options ranging from a large five-colour gradient crescent to a smaller shawl composed of one solid colour with a contrast edging of the same modern geometric lace, there is a version of Allira that will best reflect the light that you want to be seen in.
Allira includes both written and charted instructions for the lace section.
DIMENSIONS Small variation: 83” x 14” / 211 x 36 cm Large variations: 108” x 19” / 275 x 48 cm Measurements taken after blocking.

Hello from Australia! You’ll pretty much always find me dreaming about my next favourite shawl - the accessory I most love to design, knit and wear. Otherwise I’ll be wandering about my vegetable garden, nearby bush or perhaps a little escape to the beach.
With a background in painting, I have a passion for colour and interesting design.
I design contemporary knitwear patterns, with a nod to retro and geometric design. Patterns that are straight forward to follow and fun to wear.
