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.
I teach classes around the San Francisco Bay Area. See upcoming classes at www.kirakdesigns.com/Classes.htm. I am also available for private lessons by appointment.

This pretty lace shawl is the perfect combination of simple and interesting. It starts at the neck, and the slightly-more-than-half circle shape is created with rows of yarn-overs. Two sets of diamond motifs accent the lower border, and are an easy introduction to lace knitting and chart reading. The diamond lace pattern is both written out and charted.
4" = 18 sts and 32 rows in Stocking Stitch, blocked
Note: yarns shown usually knit at 24-27 sts to 4" in Stocking Stitch, but are knit on a larger needle here and then blocked out firmly.
