Sakina Beaded Cuff (Bollybeads Collection)
From the description on Patternfish:
“Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s 2007 film ‘Saawariya’ (‘Beloved’) is the story of Ranbir Raj, who is in love with the sad and mysterious Sakina,” explains Matthews. “The film is a cinematic vision in blue and teal, and this cuff is inspired by one of Sakina’s saris.” The designer is a huge fan of Hindi cinema (“Bollywood”); she draws inspiration for the colours and motifs of her knitted beaded cuffs from the movies she loves. This is a wonderful place to begin beaded knitting. The design is simple and lovely, appropriate anywhere, and the pattern is very clear and easy to read.
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.
