Roxanne is a rectangular shawl, or stole, that celebrates life and growth. Vining flowers and heart shaped leaf motifs combine with a deeply scalloped knitted on border to create a classic lace shawl which expresses both love and hope. This pattern begins with knitting a long, rectangular lace panel. Stitches are picked up all around this rectangle and a knitted on border is added perpendicular to the existing stitches. Both written and charted directions are given and the knitter may switch between them. This shawl can be modified in width or length. Suggestions for how to modify the pattern are given, but details are left up to the knitter. Remember that changes in the overall length or width will change the amount of yarn used and the overall stitch count. Roxanne was designed in honor of my midwife who was with me for the birth of all three of my children and who passed away in April of 2016. It is my tribute to her amazing life and to all she gave to the mothers in Santa Cruz County, California. Thank you, Rox, for everything. Tech edited by Dana Gervais and Katharine Seaman.

I've been doing various crafts all my life. I learned to crochet when I was 6 and to sew a couple of years later. I started making quilts near the end of high school and cross-stitched for several years in college. I have sewn clothes for myself and my kids and I learned to knit about five years ago. I enjoy keeping busy! You can read my blog at
