Lace Shawl Design »
InstructionsI have created three charts for this - the beginning tip chart, then the main pattern chart, then the outer pattern chart. I have not yet created the verbal part of the pattern nor completely finished the charts. I may also make some improvements before releasing the pattern.

Twisted Fiber Art Yummy Single Evolution
What was your inspiration?
Miriam Felton's excellent course and Annie Maloney's great stitch patterns (numbers 39, Linked Diamonds and 58 Ridged Chevron) from Mastering Lacework.
What are you most proud of?
My knitting designs are all intended to feature the yarns dyed by my extremely talented daughter Meg, of Twisted Fiber Art. For shawls, that means that we will be working with Evolutions, yarns which run through a series of colors. And with Evolutions, it is almost as important not to have too much yarn as not to have too little. I feel as though this design will allow the knitter to use however much yarn is available, with just a bit left over. I think I have taken Miriam's insightful advice and made it work with my special design constraints.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
