I've been creating knitting and crocheting patterns for about 30 years and did it professionnaly for yarn manufacturers for a while. You can see some of my work on my blog : www.sophiegelfi.frView all patterns by designer (30) »
It's a fun and easy to do shawl even for beginners. The fancy border takes a bit of time but you can do another one more simple.
The one you see on the photo has been made with a sock yarn from a famous japonese manufacturer but you can use any variegated or hand dyed sock yarn you like.
Hope you'll take a lot of pleasure to use this pattern, if you have any question, don't hesitate to email me : firstname.lastname@example.org
