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) »
Kit for this shawl is available here:
Princess and The Pea is a triangular-ish shaped shawl worked from the bottom up. The pattern is worked on the both wrong and right sides, but it is easy enough to memorize and knit. Because of the shape, this shawl is very easy to wear and stay put on the shoulder. Pattern includes charts and written directions. If you would like to add beads to your shawl, instructions are included as to where to place the beads.
