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) »
For the Shawl Kit you can buy it at my website or my etsy store
A saltire is a heraldic symbol in the form of a diagonal cross ☓ or letter x. I name this shaw Saltire because you can find a lot of x-stitches all over the shawl.
Saltire is a half circle-ish shaped shawl with interesting construction. You can make this shawl with 1 color or 2 colors. Both give you stunning result.
Instruction come in 2 sizes, small and large, but you can adjust the size. As with all my other patterns, this pattern comes with both written instructions and charts.
Suggested yarn and yardage needed: Any sock yarn (920 - 1,600 yards)
You need at least 2 skeins of yarn to do a small size shawl (if you are not a tight crocheter like me most likely that you need 3 skeins) and 4 skeins to make the large one.
For 2 colors shawl the ratio is 50:50.
I used Rendezvous Forever Sock 2 skeins (200g, 920 yards) for small size.
Hook: 4.50 mm (G) and 5.00 (H) (adjust hook size accordingly if you use thinner/thicker yarn)
Notions: Removable stitch markers for crochet
