I make this shawl in October 2010, but never got opportunity to snap a nice modeled photo, so it has to wait until now. This is my first experienced to work with Sundara yarn. I must admit that I enjoy working it and as you can see here the color is amazing.

Anyway, this is my third knitting shawl design, after Bella and Metropolitan Shawl. This time I tried different construction. Instead bottom-up construction, I used top-down. I must say that I prefer top-down. I also tried to use more complicated side edging.
And….. I got technical editor checking out this pattern. Isn’t it cool!
Thus, its more than my target, which is only 3 designs a year.
I got several designs that I started in year 2010 and never make it to final yet. If you remember my old posts, I mention about designing crocheted bolero. I had already started drawing the diagram, but somehow I never able to finish it. Beside this bolero, I also have 2 knit shawls (Poison Ivy and Something Grey) and 3 crochet shawls (Cassandra, Blue Lagoon, and Almost Pinnaples) that are still in process of writing. I hope I can publish them all this year.
Thank you so much for all your support by buying my patterns all these years.
I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 4 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing my own patterns, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year. My patterns can be found on my blog
and through Etsy and on Ravelry.
