No, I don’t garden naked. And no, for now I have no plans to start. But if I do, one day, I would still wear a shawl ;)
Then why does the shawl bear this name? It is the last shawl from my Inner Gardens e-book. The book is both about real inner gardens with their flowers, birds and cats as well as about the gardens that are inside our hearts. Being naked there for me means seeing ourselves in our full beauty and loving ourselves just because we are.
Try out something extraordinary: The pattern contains a self-empathy practice based on Nonviolent Communication principles for developing the clarity about what we love and value in our relationships, in our life, in ourselves.
Naked Gardening is the eight pattern from the Inner Gardens e-book.
Yarn, sizes, beads, etc.
The shawl can be worked from either lace or fingering weight. Instructions for two sizes are provided, customization options are included.
Add just around 100 beads for some sparkle if desired.
For information about gauge, yardage, measurements and other details check the page included among the photos on the left.
The pattern is fully written and charted.
The shawl will go well both with jeans and smart clothes. This asymmetric triangle is reversible and looks modern, while based on a traditional Shetland lace pattern. The lace is patterned on both sides, but it is rather rythmic and easy to work. Some 100 beads may be used to add some sparkle if desired.
It was a mystery
The pattern was first released as a Mystery Knit-A-Long. The MKAL was running at the Anima Knitting Club here on Ravelry. Visit the group for inspiration about finished projects and to share your experiences with the self-empathy practice.
