Magine is a triangle shaped shawl featuring a lacey eyelet edging with the main body in garter stitch. The lace edging can be blocked into large diamond points as shown or as scallops. The simple, elegant structure of this shawl is perfect for showing off a lovely hand dyed yarn. Choose between the large or small version. This pattern is easy to memorize after a few pattern repeats. Knit from side to side, you have the ability to use all of your yarn without needing more – just weigh your yarn first. Simply work the increase section till your yarn is half gone, then start decreasing for the second half.
This is a lovely pattern for a beginner knitter and is interesting enough for a more experienced knitter to enjoy.
Choose between easy to follow written or charted instructions.

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.
