Liliiflora is another name of the purple magnolia flower. I saw a lot of these flowers blooming beautifully in the early spring during my trip to southern China, and was inspired to create a shawl that incorporated this motif. This shawlette is worked from the bottom up and the narrow curved shape of lace is created by short rows. Pattern includes charts and written directions, and stitch count totals for every row. I also include tips on how to make a larger or smaller shawl and the yardage needed.

I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 4 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing my own patterns, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year. My patterns can be found on my blog
and through Etsy and on Ravelry.
