Plus, Merinda’s rhythmic increases pair with asymmetrical triangular shaping to create a shawl that is terrific to knit and easy to wear. Sublime!

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.
