Kalimna is an Australian Aboriginal word meaning beautiful. The Kalimna shawl features a delicate lace edging with garter stitch body that is simpler to knit than it appears. The long, shallow crescent shape is designed to be draped over the shoulders or wrapped around like a scarf. This pattern provides both written and charted instructions and is worked from side to side. Choose between a Large 2 skein Shawl or a Small 1 skein Shawl.

Hello from Australia! You’ll pretty much always find me dreaming about my next favourite shawl - the accessory I most love to design, knit and wear. Otherwise I’ll be wandering about my vegetable garden, nearby bush or perhaps a little escape to the beach. With a background in painting, I have a passion for colour and interesting design. I design contemporary knitwear patterns, with a nod to retro and geometric design. Patterns that are straight forward to follow and fun to wear.
