Indie Design GAL: Shawls Part 1

Indie Design GAL: Shawls Part 1

This is part of my on-going Indie Designer Gift-A-Long 2018 series. Starting on November 24th, one to two times a week I will be highlighting 4-6 designs from my fellow designers also participating in the event.

Don’t forget to join in the fun, we’re all over here chatting up a storm.

Wolf Moon by Catherine Knutsson

From the pattern description
Wolf Moon is a crescent-shaped shawl featuring a geometric lace pattern inspired by wolf tracks crisscrossing a snow-covered field. It is edged with a ribbed border than can be worked in a twisted rib if desired.

Available in three size options, and uses 470 – 750 yds of light fingering weight yarn.

Aether Shawl by Amy van de Laar

From the pattern description
Aether is the material once believed to fill the sky above the terrestrial sphere, a fifth element through which light travels. Starlight was the inspiration for this geometric lace pattern, with mesh triangles forming a mosaic of starbursts on a background of garter stitch.

Available in one size, and uses 660 – 766 yds of lace weight yarn.

When The Flowers Bloom by Lily Go

From the pattern description
When The Flowers Bloom is a half-circle shaped shawl worked from the bottom up. The pattern is worked both wrong and right side but it is easy enough to memorize and knit. If you would like to add beads to your shawl, instructions are included on where to place the beads (you need 2 sizes beads).

Available in three sizes, and uses 400 – 1670 yds of fingering weight yarn.

Silken Sands by Kelene Kinnersly

From the pattern description
The sensation of soft sand and smooth pebbles under foot translated into textured rich lace. Couple your favourite semi solid or solid yarn with Silken Sands lace body and ribbed edge for stunning wearable results.

Available in one size, and uses 500 – 550 yds of DK weight yarn.

Illumine by Nim Teasdale

From the pattern description
Illumine is inspired by the curious rays sometimes glimpsed around a source of light viewed through half-closed eyes, a camera lens, or gaps in the clouds. The design uses an evolving wedge shape which grows intuitively as you progress through the rows towards the ethereal edging. Light beading serves as row counters, so you can always find your place.

Available in two sizes, and uses 678 – 820 yds of fingering weight yarn.
