add to basket: Nina Ninetta Antonia Shawl

It was the year 1978 -* Nina, Ninetta and Antonia* were 3 mid age women that were very closed neighbors and friends - they were used to helps each other and the ground and stones around their house are still full of the sound of their voices - they was used to calls each other at grand voice just out of the doorstep. Niiinaaaa - Nineeeettaaaa - Antooooniaaaaaa - I can still hear their voices, happy and clear, echoing in my mind. after a long day of working at home, taking care of grandchildren and the elderly, in the evening they were sitting outside the door with their shawl over their shoulders to tell a few secrets and look at the stars before going to sleep.

Finished shawl showed in: Handmaiden Fine Yarn Sea Silk

I designed this cowl in occasion of my very first workshop as a teacher.

A cowl to learn knitting and warming up your neck in the cold days or in spring, I’ve added a pattern variation in the middle that make me think of butterflies so the name of this cowl came easily.

ERRATA: row 34 of pattern should be p16 not k.

Fashion is something real at our age. Cowls became one of the most fashionable accessory in the last years. I’ve got the hint when I cut my hair so short, I need more cowls! So I designed this color combo cowl and the lace motive let me think about asparagus! Enjoy!
