Designs My designs consist of various stitch patterns, mostly lace with an occasional cable. After all, who can resist a good cable? Most designs include mixed and matched stitch patterns (usually a very lacy pattern mixed with a denser one) to produce rectangular shawls, triangle top downs, Pi shawls, half circle swirls and others. The complexity of creating a design that grows with the shawl is what I find fascinating about using lace stitch patterns. The finished designs have an ebb and flow moving throughout the knitted fabric. To create this I use strong geometric lines and increase/decrease combinations that create gentle bias within the fabric.
