Testing is complete and "In a Twist" is ready for release!

Simple, top-down construction and lightweight cotton/linen

Nerida Comes to Surface



At long last, Nerida comes to light!  

"Nerida" (Greek for mermaid) is a richly textured triangle shawl knit in a beautiful new hand-dyed yarn by Alexandra's Crafts.  Variegated color-shifts and complex texture combine to create this lovely top-down shawl which features a subtle,beaded edge that not only gives weight to the body, but brings the pattern to life!

This pattern is worked in one piece from the top-down and was developed for use in classes/workshops. Step-by-step instructions are provided with charts for backup.
