Stefanie Japel learned to knit from her grandma when she was 8 years old. She grew up wearing her sweaters and borrowing the ones she made for other people. Most of these sweaters are raglans, knit in the round from the top. Stefanie continues this sweater-making tradition.
A gifted designer, Stefanie has published three knitting books: Glam Knits, Fitted Knits and From the Top. Her work has appeared in books and publications including Big Girl Knits, Stitch N Bitch Nation, KnitGrrl, Knit Wit, Not Another Teen Knitting Book, Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knit.1 and Vogue Knitting. She has designed patterns for Stitch Diva Studios, Southwest Trading Co., JCA Reynolds, Artful Yarns, Tilli Tomas and Mission Falls.
Stefanie's teaching is marked by her infectious enthusiasm and keen eye for detail. Visit her blog for more information: www.stefaniejapel.com.
I designed this shawlette in conjunction with Craftsy.com, using Lorna's Laces Solemate in the Flamingo Stripe colorway.
Lorna's Laces donates 20% of the proceeds of yarn dyed in this colorway to breast cancer charities. To me, the lace pattern resembles rows of hearts. Anyone for whom you make this shawlette will know that you care. Thank you for supporting Breast Cancer research!
50% of the sales from this pattern will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
We have already donated over $750 as of December 2015!
This pattern is not gauge sensitive. You should have aprox. 4.5 stitches to the inch, but it will look great at any gauge.
