Chandni Beaded Cuff (Bollybeads Collection)
From the description on Patternfish:
“Farah Khan’s film ‘Main Hoon Na’ (’I’m Here Now’) features the lovely Miss Chandni, a chemistry teacher who causes the main character, Major Ram Sharma, to break into song whenever she passes by,” explains the designer. “The colourways are inspired by a stunning red sari with black embroidery that she wears in the film, as well as by her name, which means ‘moonlight’.” Matthews is a huge fan of Hindi cinema (AKA Bollywood); she draws inspiration for the colours and motifs of her knitted beaded cuffs from the movies she loves. A gorgeous cuff, with a chart as well as written-out instructions.
Starting February 6 and continuing until February 24 - a day after closing ceremonies - I will donate 50% of each sale of any of my patterns to http://egale.ca/ , an organization that does good work on behalf of LGBTQ people. I was inspired to do this by my friend Lynne Sosnowski (etcgirl here on Rav), who has written beautifully of her beliefs. I hope Lynne’s thoughts will inspire others to support not only the athletes, but everyone who works hard to be faster, to fly higher, to be stronger, no matter what their endeavor, no matter who they are, no matter who they love.
