Mix a special gradient skein with stripes and lace for the ultimate bohemian shawl experience. Yemaya is a generous asymmetrical triangular wrap with multiple wearing possibilities. While Yemaya is designed to show of a gradient yarn, this shawl will work beautifully teaming a speckle, variegated or semi solid with your two contrasting skeins.
The Yemaya lace is both charted and written. The lace requires concentration and will suit an intermediate knitter with some lace experience.

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.
