Return of the Swallow is an original sideways shawl worked in stockinette stitch and adorned by a pretty lace edging. The unusual increase rate creates a long asymmetrical triangle with diagonal lines, giving a classic construction just the right amount of zest. The overall effect is feminine and flirty for a fast and rewarding project.

I have been designing since 2008 and started being more professionally interested during the year 2010. I focus my designs on my own selfish interests: garments and accessories for boys (or unisex, of course), women and occasionally men.
