To our publishers and customers

[June 16, 2019] The site has now stopped selling patterns.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

for Red Bird Knits   2014

Anatolian Shawl

Gallimore says this is: "a cozy warm and generously sized shawl, knitted in the round with a steek. Lovely soft fingering weight yarn in contrasting colours (Miss Babs Yummy 2-ply Superwash in Pewter and Rainy Days - 2 skeins of each colour) are knitted in an old Anatolian motif drawn from Turkish socks. The very subtle variegation in the yarn adds extra dimension to the not quite symmetrical motif.

Revised Chart for ruffled edge uploaded November 2015.

"All but the beginning few rows and the last trim rows are knitted in the round: the steek is secured, cut, then bound with a knitted trim."

A remarkable work, absolutely timeless. If this shawl were the one remnant of our civilization, future historians would think only the best of us.
