The pattern and color for this shawl reminds me of rejuvenation. The shape of this shawl is based on the Faroese shawl concept. Therefore it stays on the shoulders keeping the wearer warm. The pattern is worked as a border. The rest of the shawl is worked in Garter stitch. Instead of fringe which is customary for Faroese shawls, I have used a beautiful edging that I found in a magazine from 1880. This pattern is part of a collection of six designs. 50% of the proceeds, after expenses, will be donated to Brain Cancer research at UCSF (University of California, San Francisco) in memory of my sister who lost her battle with the disease in July 2012.

Since 2007 I have started offering my designs independently. I studied computer science in college and that has helped me in writing instructions. I always try my best to offer accurate patterns. Most of my designs have charts included with written instructions.
