Collanne is named after my grandmother – an affable woman who kindled my creative spirit from a very young age. My grandmother doesn’t knit or crochet – and she never has. That doesn’t mean she didn’t dip her toes into the world of textiles. For years she created beautiful designs while working at the now defunct Blue Bird Silk Mill in York, Pennsylvania. It was then that she began to draw and paint and further explore her creative side – something she has always encouraged me to do. To this day, we continue chatting with one another about our creative ideas and endeavors – so why not name a design after her?

Special thanks to the lovely alephita for modeling this shawl!

This shawl is worked from tip to tip, beginning and ending with just two stitches. A lace panel travels upward along one side of this shawl, increasing to the widest point and decreasing to the tip. When CC is introduced on Row 64, change colors when indicated using the intarsia method. After the body of the shawl is complete, stitches along the outer edge of the shawl are picked up and worked in garter stitch for a few rows before binding off using the two-color I-cord method.
