PATTERN DETAILS

I love rain. When I was little, I could not wait for a storm to pass so I could put my rain boots on and go outside to jump in the puddles. Dew, mist, drizzle, cloudburst, torrent - even these simple words make me happy. I adore the scent of rain in the air, before and after it falls. I love the way it washes the entire world, making the ordinary seem bright and new again, decorating everything with brilliant diamonds of raindrops. Oborine, meaning rainfall, is inspired by these tiny bits of rainbow trickling down the leaves after the rain. This shawl is my classic top-down short row crescent shawl, designed with several different options to choose from: Large, Medium or Mini size with many beads, fewer beads, or with beads placed only along the edges. The lace pattern is simple enough even for a novice lace knitter because it includes only basic stitches and the wrong side rows are all purled. There are three options for beading given, but the project will also look great without any beads. All sizes of the shawl can be worked in lace or fingering weight yarns, and the Mini can be also worked in thicker yarns, such as sport or DK, giving you even more options for customization.

Artist by calling, art historian by training, completely obsessed with yarn. The colors, the textures, the infinite possibilities within each skein… I love knitting cables. I love knitting lace. Cables combined with lace are my idea of a knitting nirvana. I have been designing knits ever since I first picked up the needles about ten years ago; my first ‘swatch’ was a sweater for my baby boy. Since then, my designs have appeared in numerous publications, such as Interweave Knits, Jane Austen Knits, Twist Collective, and Knitty. All of my designs and projects can be found at www.ArtQualia.com. I am a little bit of a nomad; originally from Europe, I’ve lived in five US states and two European countries. I’ve studied fashion design and I have an extensive background in studio arts and art history. All these travels and studies, along with my love of nature, continue to inspire my knitting.
