Sweet lilac is a very easy and fun sideways shawl worked in a combination of lace polka dots and garter stitch. The fun edging is worked as a long type of picot, for a simple yet striking visual effect. The center of the shawl is worked with short rows to give it a true crescent shape. The design lends itself particularly well to variegated yarns and makes quick and simple knit for the advanced beginner.

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.
