How beautiful is this shawl?
This week's designer, knitterain, shows us how it's done with her delicate and lovely patterns.

So, that shawl in the picture is Arlington, and it's a great example of her style. Pieces that could certainly be timeless, and always are solid, attractive, and rewarding knits.

I'll give you two more examples:

There's the cooly colourful Burano, inspired by the brightly hued streets of that Italian city. The pattern page describes it as a relaxing knit with high flexibility, and I'd have to agree. Top down, garter stitch, two different sizes, and again, timeless and lovely. You can't go wrong!

Last example: Haruni.
It's translated into about 10 languages, has options for crochet OR knitted bind offs, charts, and a top-down design. Everything I read about this pattern I like!

I LOVE Emily's designs! Every pattern of hers that I have tackled or own are gorgeous designs with extremely clear and detailed instructions. I love that she has both written and charted instructions and the results are always something that garners tons of compliments.
