RACE AWAY is a large, soft and enveloping elegant wrap, just glorious to drape around your body. Warm Moonshine (or any of our soft and luxurious 4ply yarn) can be used to create this shawl. A garter stitch border accented with an asymmetrical triangular shape, increasing until you have 10m of yarn left to complete the last border.
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 also delicate and light.
