Yera is an Australian Aboriginal word meaning Joyful, which is precisely how I feel about this combination of colour & form. A play of three colours: work in neutral tones, offset your favourite bright colours with contrasting bands, or knit this up in a single colour for something you can grab-and-go.Yera’s simple lace pattern looks more complicated than it is and will appeal to adventurous beginners and advanced knitters alike. Yera is worked from side to side with gradual increases, resulting in an asymmetrical, triangular shape and making it easy to incorporate additional repeats to increase the overall size of this shawl, if desired.
