I have designed original patterns for Fleece Artist and Hand Maiden, local yarn labels, and Baadeck Yarns, a yarn shop in Baddeck, Cape Breton.
I’m currently working to expand and update my pattern design portfolio, inspired by the many beautiful handspun, hand dyed, locally sourced yarns available on the market now, and how to best use these yarns to bring out the very best in their colour and fibre content properties.

STORM WATER SHAWL

Created for Handmaiden Fine Yarn Inc.
*Finished measurements and gauge are taken with a blocked and pressed piece, as silk will grow about 20% in length and 15% in width so it is important to allow for this. Your pieces will seem very small until the garment is blocked.
