Shine On Shawl

Pick two colours of your favourite fingering weight yarn and lose yourself in a deceptively simple knit. Shine On Shawl combines a clean lace stitch with a complex-looking, but easy to work, diamond mosaic pattern. The graphic diamond motif is created with slipped stitches, and only one colour is ever worked at one time – no stranding! Simple increases form a shallow triangle shawl, a shape as classic and timeless as the mellow guitar riffs of Pink Floyd’s Shine On You Crazy Diamond which played through my mind as I knit. Choose between two sizes, small and large.

The Shine on Shawl is worked top down and includes both charted and written 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.
