Xandy Peters Patterns - Berry Crumble - PDF DOWNLOAD
From designer Xandy Peters: The colors in this shawl are inspired by a berry crumble that I ate in Edinburgh. The colors smoothly fade from purple to pink to yellow and look a lot like the berry filling soaking into the top crust of my dessert. The yarn colors do not need to be similar in order to create the fade. The combination of lace, brioche, and garter stitch is arranged to blend any shades together. Make sure your yarns have good contrast so that the stitch work is well defined.

Xandy Peters Patterns - Solarita Shawl - PDF DOWNLOAD
From designer Xandy Peters: I was thinking of the sun, margaritas, and very warm, autumnal shawls when I designed this crescent wrap. I'm even cold in the summer sometimes. Especially after dark, or in late August when the weather starts to shift. Thinking of the summer sun setting as I sit outside with friends, chatting and watching the sky change color - this is when I start to shiver and look for something warm like the sun.
So I drew up a shawl like the setting sun in my sketchbook and knit it up. Solarita is a crescent shaped shawl with a garter stitch base and a lacy border. The edge is a faux fringe look with a unique construction. Solarita is perfect for spring weather, chilly summer nights, or windy days in autumn.
Finished Size: 15" deep x 72" wide.

The stripes, chevrons, and short rows come together to create a geometric pattern free of any strands on the reverse side, making it good enough to wear inside-out.
