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) »
Narnia is a triangular shawl worked from the top down. This shawl was quite challenging for me as I learnt some new stitches that are quite a handful to do. This shawl is all about texture. It reminds me of the wood carving in my grandparents' wardrobe, and I always imagine that wardrobe was the same wardrobe in the The Chronicles of Narnia story.
I used worsted weight yarn for this pattern to make the texture pop out. As a result, not only is this shawl beautiful to look but it is very functional.
As usual pattern includes charts and written directions. I also include a picture tutorial of how to make the crochet bind-off, and tips on how to make a larger shawl and calculate the yardage needed.
