Do you have skeins of contrasting yarn that are destined to be together, the Shawl of destiny began with a colour combination that was haunting me - they were destined to become my new favourite shawl. The triangular shape lends itself to many wearing options; scarf, shawl, kerchief style and more. The pattern is a combination of textures and colour, with satisfying garter stitch sections interspersed with geometric lace a fresh and modern combination. The lace takes some concentration and is both written and charted. Worked from the top down.

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.
