Worked in DK weight, Zane is a large, cosy triangular shawl that looks great on both guys and gals. Wear it draped at the front kerchief-style, folded as a scarf, or looped casually as a more traditional shawl. Have fun with your colour selections to create a dynamic version—perfect for using up stash—or keep it sophisticated with a two-colour variation. Either way, Zane is sure to be a hit!
Zane is a soothing knit that is perfect for beginners, with simple increases and decreases, a relaxing project for seasoned knitters.

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.
