I am continually inspired by the beautiful colours and craft we see from dyers in the fiber arts. I wanted to dedicate a shawl appreciating these skills. I designed this shawl, moved by the floral sts of Herbert Niebling, composing my version of the Avignon berry. The Avignon berry, or species Rhamnus, is a buckthorn often used by dyers and artists to produce a yellow hue.

This is a pattern for an half hexagon shaped shawl. It is knit from the top down with complex lace stitches and stockinette. The shawl’s leaf motif lace falls beautifully, and most securely, on one’s shoulders.
