Malena is an elegant shawl with a flair for the dramatic. It's dressy enough to wear with an evening gown, or as an accent piece for every day. The intricate-looking chevron-and-eyelet pattern is deceptively simple to knit and easy to memorize. Gorgeous in a solid color, Malena would make a lovely showcase for that special sock yarn, too.

I'm Andrea and I make great knitting patterns! I live on Vancouver Island in Canada, where I knit, design, and ride my bike. I love the functionality and beauty of knitting and knit everything from head to toe. My patterns have been published in Brooklyn Tweed Wool People, Twist Collective, Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knitty, and other publications, as well as independently. I'm working on a book called Rugged Knits with Interweave that's scheduled to come out in the spring of 2016. All of my independently-published patterns have been thoroughly tested and edited for clarity and accuracy.
