MOMENTS is a soft and fluffy elegant wrap, just glorious to drape around your body. One hank of hand-dyed 4ply is used to create the main body of the shawl and one hank of WarmCobblestone used for the accent motif ‘fans’ pattern. Increase each side of the spine using the yarn-over method.
I created my design company to challenge the misconception of ‘easy is dull’. What I create is simple in form, pleasing to knit and a delight to wear. The yarns I sell are luscious and the hand-made original shawl-pins are not only beautiful to look at but delicate and light, therefore a pleasure to wear.
