Doves Cry is a love song. This shawl is a bit of a love song too - it’s the warm, sweet embrace of new love, the wings that allow you to take flight and sail away on an updraft. I offer this shawl as a tribute and thank you to an important artist. Enjoy making this project, and perhaps knitting your own thank you or goodbye into it. Make your own art and send your own message with Doves Cry.

On occasion we should all strive to live outside the lines of life’s colorbook.

Go forth and color outside the lines today!
This beautiful airy shawl was inspired by my recent trip home to visit my family after almost 3 years. The lacy sections represent the interconnectedness of our rich multicultural heritage and the garter sections represent the strength of our bonds, regardless of time and distance.
An easy to memorize lace pattern and the repetitiveness of garter bands will have this shawl flying off your needles.
This zippy little number will have people turning heads wherever you go. This shawl has a broad center spine showcasing a beautiful bamboo stitch pattern. The spine is bordered by two triangles with alternating bands of stockinette and garter stitch. The triangles grow as you knit creating an illusion that the center spine is narrowing as the shawl grows wider.
This crescent shaped shawl is a quick easy knit. Alternating sections of stockinette and garter stitch serve to really show off that special skein of fingering weight yarn you’ve been saving. A dropped stitch border further showcases the yarn and creates a lightness that’ll have you wearing this shawl all year round.
Three equal size triangles are joined as you go, eyelets lend an airy quality to this shawl while a center and border piece in garter stitch ground the garment and provide warmth and coziness. Another quick and fun knit that allows you to be creative with your color choices.
This asymmetric shawl is worked as a traditional triangular shawl but with double increases on one half and a single increase on the other half to create an asymmetric shape. Increases are worked on both sides. After completion, the shawl is worn with the longest side as the top.
California Waves is reminiscent of a wave pattern as it dissipates. A chevron stitch pattern, alternating in garter and stockinette, increases in width as the shawl grows. A stripey border and i-cord bind-off finish off this piece, giving it a polished look.
