What Jane Says
"The name of a repeated tessellating design, like the one I have used in this shawl, is called an 'Ogee' pattern in Arabesque design. It took me a few weeks to get the design of these blocks right; initially I came up with loads of really complicated ways to create this motif, but in the end it was so simple - funny how sometimes a design process can take so long and the outcome can be so easy to make! The pattern for the lantern shape motif is based on a Granny Hexagon pattern, but I have made a few changes to come up with the curved design that tessellates.
I have used what I think is a really fun idea in relation to the way this shawl is made. It is an idea credited to my friend Dani, who invented a wonderful way of creating a beautiful unique scarf of her own design a little while ago. The idea is wonderfully simple, yet incredibly effective and great fun to do, so please read on to find out about the surprise technique in this design, which will enable you to produce a truly distinctive and beautiful shawl."
