Kalari is a delightfully simple knit, perfect for cosying up by the fire and dreaming of warmer days, or sitting by the beach and drifting off in the sun. The result: a versatile shallow triangular shawl, the subtle textures are perfect for showing off a gradient yarn or your favourite solid/ variegated colour. Worked from the top-down, the repeats are easily memorised and this shawl is readily adapted by simply increasing or decreasing the number of repeats worked.

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.
