Take 3 delicious skeins of yarn and whip up Tarni, a shallow triangular shawl, with a fun bobble design to show off your favourite statement colour. Work the main body of the shawl in stripes, with a semi solid contrasting against a speckled skein, or use a gradient to contrast instead. Or keep it simple with one colour for the body and add another dimension with the bobble short rows. So many ways to put your creative stamp on this design, with an easy to wear result that will have you reaching for it often.

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.
