The perfect lightweight shawlette for a summer's picnic or that special evening out. Pair it up with your favorite cotton dress for a casual date or wear it to a summer wedding. This shawl is delicately lacy and sturdy at the same time. The lace dayflower motif forms a field of flowers across the lower edge of the shawl. A brief shower of rain drops is scattered across the top of the shawl, ready to nourish the flowers below. This pattern is written for both fingering and lace weight yarns. In addition to charts and written instructions, there is a section of guidelines for customizing the size of the shawl. Basic formulas are provided for adding lace repeats and adjusting the short row instructions for different stitch counts. These instructions are guidelines only and will change the yardage requirements.

I prefer to design simple patterns that are (relatively) easy to knit. It might be redundant to say so, but I design socks that I’d want to knit. I want a pattern that looks fantastic, but isn’t ridiculously complicated. I want it to be easy, without being boring. I want to challenge myself a little, but not make things more difficult than they need to be. I love cables, twisted stitches, and lace. But not all at the same time! I try to design multiple sizes for each pattern since legs and feet come in all sizes. I also expect knitters to take liberties with the instructions and be able to substitute their favorite heel, toe or cuff if they so choose. I’m also pleased when a pattern can be converted into toe up without too much effort, although not all stitch patterns lend themselves to this. I do have every pattern test knitted to ensure accuracy and to get different perspectives on each pattern. However, I am human, so mistakes might happen. If they do, I’ll get them fixed right away.
