Why are your patterns no longer on Ravelry?:
In June 2020, Ravelry announced a redesign of their new website. While the aesthetics of the site could be debated, the new site triggered hundreds of migraines in migraine sufferers, and at least eight confirmed seizures in users. In response, Ravelry has shut down the “Accessibility” thread in their “For the Love of Ravelry” forum, silencing their neurodiverse user base. Furthermore, their statement of clarification made it clear that they do not (at the moment) intend for their site to be inclusive to those needs.

As a frequent migraine sufferer myself (although my migraines were not personally triggered by the site’s redesign), I cannot in good conscience direct my followers to a harmful and potentially dangerous website. Consequently, I have removed the files from my Ravelry pattern pages, with users instead being asked to redirect to my website — a website that was designed with those various needs in mind (thanks to the help I received from friends who are UI/UX developers and usability advocates).

Spring into the warmer weather with this boomerang shawl! “Bom” (봄), meaning “Spring” in Korean, is a quick, asymmetrical accessory that works perfectly as a bold statement piece in your favorite bright colors, or as a transitional layering piece for those cooler Spring evenings.

Simple slipped mosaic stitches are a great companion to a busy brunch out with knitting friends, while the delicate lace motif is reminiscent of blossoming redbud flowers.

Knit out of two colors of fingering weight yarn, Bom is the perfect pattern to use up any leftover skeins you may have in your stash.

Sizes: One size, but size may be easily adjusted by adding, removing, shortening, or lengthening any of the sections. Following this pattern exactly will produce a shawl that blocks out to approximately 78” (200cm) wingspan by 16” (40cm) depth.

Yarn: 2 colors of fingering weight yarn.

Recommended Yarn: From Me To Yarn.
Sample is knit in the colorways Unicorn Rave and Bom Purple.

Needles: Circular needles in US 5 (3.75mm).

Gauge: Gauge is not critical, but should approximate to 17 stitches and 20 rows after vigorously blocking for 4 inches squared in mosaic stitch.

Thank you to Jessie of From Me To Yarn for providing yarn support, and to my test knitters barelake, cece_m, chriscushman, fifikins, grey_sky_yarn, kristen_knits, saigesubmarine, and willamaejenkins.

Designing is a fulfilling hobby for me, so I will not be charging for my patterns at this moment in time. However, if you would like to tip me, please feel free to do so at my Ko-fi page. Ko-fi’s are never expected but always appreciated.
