I have loved making things that involve using my hands ever since I was a very small child. Things have evolved since then. Sewing, quilting, smocking, embroidery, spinning and of course knitting and machine knitting. I have been designing my own knitting patterns for many years now, but more seriously during the last 5 years. Since 2008, my husband and I have been living aboard our sailings vessel "ONEDAY". We left Bayfield ON in August 2008 and up to this time, we have spent our time cruising the Eastern Seaboard and the Bahamas. For a couple of months each year, we return to our home in Ontario where I love to teach knitting classes which I create around my own designs. I have paterns for sale on Craftsy, Knit Picks, Etsy and on Ravelry also. You can find me under my name, Linda Sellick or "ONEDAYDESIGNS".

This beautiful lace triangular shawl is worked from top to bottom. The easy to remember stitch pattern is suitable for novice as well as experienced knitters. There are only five purl rows in the entire shawl, making it a relatively fast knit.
Beads are vertically mounted and knitted in on the edge of the border. This pattern has both written and charted instructions and includes a complete row count for all 3 sizes.
I was inspired to design this shawl pattern after purchasing a lovely skein of variegated hand dyed yarn and the diagonal nature of this design showcases the colour changes beautifully. I have also knit this pattern using a solid shade of yarn with equally good results.
I designed this shawl while sailing on the Atlantic Ocean on our sailing vessel "Oneday"
