If Amalia was the legend of fado, Mariza has become the face of a new generation of singers. She describes her fado as “curvo” or curved – and she takes the form in new directions.
Mariza is a crescent shaped shoulder shawl, with a lace border adapted from the Portuguese Edging in A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara G. Walker.
The shawl is worked from the top down with three panels of garter stitch. The edging is attached to live stitches at the bottom of the shawl.
For the adventurous intermediate knitter.

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.
