Pattern Details

Jali is the term for a perforated lattice window screen. Widely used in ancient Indian architecture, jalis are most commonly carved out of stone, using intricate geometrical patterns. Windows with jalis served two purposes, one being aesthetically beautiful and the other more practical in nature; providing natural air conditioning??air gets cooler when it expands. When summer winds from the desert air threatened to overheat a building, the jali which invites natural air flow, cooled the building's interiors. I wanted to create an intricate design that also kept the skin cool in summer. My stole was thereby inspired by the use of jalis in numerous ancient Indian palaces that I encountered when I visited the Indian desert state of Rajasthan.

The love that I have for knitting and the pure joy that it brings me has been passed down to me from both my mother and my grandmother. Decades later, my passion for knitting has only deepened. I know that knitting will always be an intrinsic part of my life, and I am excited to conjure up new ideas, designs and projects. Besides knitting I love crocheting, cross-stitching, sewing, cooking, listening to music, watching movies, etc, etc, etc.--I wish a day was longer sometimes! I find indulging in creative pursuits is very therapeutic and relaxing much like yoga.
