Pattern Description:

This triangular shawl is worked from the center out in a lace pattern that resembles large and small flames. It was inspired by Mary Chapin Carpenter's "A Keeper for Every Flame."

I've crocheted just about my whole life. I taught myself to knit in the early 2000s and haven't slowed down since. I've also gone through counted cross-stitch and needlepoint periods.

I almost always modify knitting patterns I like, so about a year ago I started designing and publishing my own patterns.

All of the patterns that I sell have been tech edited and test knit before release.
