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) »

Fox and The Grapes is a triangular 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. I named it Fox and The Grapes because I can see foxes and grapes in the pattern. Can you see them?
