Sanguinella is a shawl as romantic as the sunset. Inspired by the color of the yarn, which reminds me of sunsets on snow covered mountains and its namesake, my favorite oranges. When the sun sets, the mountain top snow glitters and shines in a myriad of colors, sparkling like diamonds. and the last rays of sunlight dance and reflect over the mountain tops sending beams into the sky. This crescent shaped shawl is worked in one piece from the top edge, with increases worked along the border, and uses just one skein of most sock yarns. Lace patterning starts at intervals and expands into the main stockinette body of the shawl like mountains rising from a valley below. The relative sturdiness of the top edge is what gives the shawl its shape and allows the lace pattern to retain some of the texture even after blocking. This pattern is available with full written as well as charted instructions!

I am originally from Switzerland, but live in the US since ‘99. I have been knitting since I was about five years old and I mostly make my own designs and patterns. I started designing my own sweaters and accessories at an early age, as that was just the way sweaters where done. Only later did I transition to indulging in the luxury of ready-made patterns. I used to design and make mostly sweaters and other cold weather favs, (I did come from a snowy place, after all) but have fallen head over heels for lace shawls and have not looked back since! You can see more of my designs under OwlCat Designs on Ravelry. Thanks for your interest in my patterns and I hope you enjoy knitting the designs as much as I did making them for you! :)
