I had created this shawl long before I discovered that there were lots of knitting sites and groups on the internet. Back then I didn't know either that one day I would show my designs to the world. A few years later, when I used a photo of my favourite stole as a background picture on social media, I was surprised, that many of my readers asked for the pattern immediately. Well, here it is, use it with as much love as I have made it.
This lovely pattern is perfect for everyone who would like to start knitting lace but does not feel experienced enough yet for a complicated work built up from various stitch patterns. You will find that the pattern is not too difficult to remember once you've got into it, still, it looks elegant and sophisticated. The shawl is rectangular and can be worn in different ways.
The pattern contains a row-by-row description, charts and photos.
25 st x 35 rows = 10x10 cm in stockinette

I grew up with yarn, needles and crochet hooks around me. I remember watching my mom and grandma doing magic with yarn - it was just natural that I would follow their footsteps. Nowadays I am always working on something, and I almost never make the same thing twice.
I like innovation in my knitting and crochet, adding a little twist that makes an everyday item special and unique in some way.
I love lace and cables, I work a lot with cotton and mixed yarns. Yarns with a rich texture inspire me too.
After more than 25 years of crafting I am still learning, discovering new techniques, and getting inspired by the work of fellow crafters and designers. Being able to knit and crochet is one of the great gifts of life for me.
