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. It's only USD 28 for the small kit and USD 51 for the large kit (free shipping worldwide).
Blooming Fuchsia is a triangularish-shaped shawl worked from the bottom up. I named this shawl Blooming Fuchsia because the color of the yarn I used to knit this shawl is inspired by the color of blooming Fuchsia.
Pattern includes charts and written directions, and instructions to calculate the stitch count totals for every row. I also include the number of stitches to cast on and the yardage if you decide to work a different number of repeats.

I used Rendezvous Yarn 100% Merino Superwash (Blooming Fuchia color) 1 skein (100g, 490 yards) for 10 repeats (30% before the end, I changed the needle to smaller size because I was afraid running out of yarn. I am glad I did because I only had a few yards left over in the end), so I suggest doing 9 repeats if you are using this yarn.
Finished Size (10 repeats): 53" wide by 27.5" deep
Needle: 3.5 mm (US 4) and 4.5 mm (US 7) circular needle, 32" or longer.
Notions: stitch markers (optional), size 8 seed beads (optional)
