Kira K Designs is a line of original knitting and crochet patterns with a streamlined and eminently wearable aesthetic. Research on historical clothing, which Kira did during her former career as a theatrical costume designer, is a strong influence on her design sense, and many patterns reference styles from the 1920s through the 1960s. Kira's family history of Danish Modern furniture design is also an important influence on her patterns, resulting in garments and accessories with clean lines and intriguing details that are both interesting to make and easy to wear.

This whisper-light shawl drapes gracefully from the shoulders, with a pretty lace border radiating out from a simple textured yoke. The 3/4-circle shape keeps it in place without the need for a pin. This is a deceptively simple design, with an intricate-looking result.
