In the New Year I’m going to be taking all my patterns offline for an extended period so I can re-do layouts, photography, some samples and reorganise my store to take into account new tax laws applicable in the EU from 1st January.
The patterns won’t be available for quite a while so if you want to grab anything do so now!
All patterns are 25% off until midnight on 26th December (no coupon needed) after which they will be deactivated for a while. Here’s the store: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/patricia-martin-designs

This simple textured shawlette is named after one of my favourite authors, Dorothy Whipple. She wrote evocative novels about domestic life in the 1930s and 1940s which have recently been republished by Persephone Press in the UK. The shawlette is knit in a standard triangle shape with a textured inner border and an outer pleated ruffle border.
Whipple is knit in a traditional triangle starting at the centre of the long edge and working out and down. The garter and moss stitch creates a warm and snuggly fabric and the pleated edge adds a flirty touch
