I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 5 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year.View all patterns by designer (38) »
Gathering Leaves shawl is crocheted from the top down and starts with an easy leave motifs that repeats every 10 rows. Then from small leaves the pattern morph seamlessly into bigger leaves and ended with a beautiful tulip motifs. You may use greater or lesser yardage to produce a smaller or larger shawl by simply reduce or increase the repeat of the smaller leaves pattern. This shawl can be worked in many different weights of yarn by changing hook size. As usual, this pattern also comes with written instruction and charts.
Yarn: I used Malabrigo Lace for the red shawl (1500 yards) and Plucky Knitter Sock Yarn for the green one (1200 yards). See last page for the red shawl photo.
Hook: 3.5 mm (E) for lace weight yarn, 4.5 mm (G) for fingering weight yarn.
Lace weight: First 10 rows = 11" across top edge, 5.5" long from centre top to point (after blocking)
Fingering weight: First 10 rows = 15" across top edge, 7.5" long from centre top to point (after blocking)
Lace weight: 58" across top edge, 28" long from centre top to point (work from row 1 to the last row).
Fingering weight: 72" across top edge, 37" long from centre top to point (work row 1 - 19, skip row 20 - 39, directly to row 40 to last row).
You can easily make the shawl bigger by adding the repeat.
