Notes From the Designer:
•Galene was the inspiration for this shawl. She was an Ancient Greek goddess who personified the calm seas.
•Imagine a calm day at the beach, listening to the gentle series of waves lapping at the shoreline. That is the feeling of this shawl, from the soft blue of the yarn to the rhythmic nature of garter stitch, occasionally interrupted by a simple column of slipped stitches.
•The feel of the silk and the curve of the shape make it easy to wear around your shoulders.
•This shawl begins at the narrow end and gradually increases, forming slipped stitch columns as you go. The end of the shawl is worked using short rows. This causes the slipped stitch columns to change direction and run perpendicular to the body of the shawl. The stitches are not complicated, as the body of the shawl is largely garter stitch.

Love this pattern. Will make again and again
I am so excited about making the Galene Shawl! I've been looking for a pattern to use for yarn I purchased in the NC mountains on a special anniversary trip and Galene is IT! I love the simple elegance of the pattern and the clear instructions. Thank you so much!
The shawl is simple and elegant.
What a lovely pattern. Thank you for such clear written instructions for those of us who are ‘chart-challenged’ and for the handy checklist with rows and stitch numbers - vital for a clumsy knitter like me!
The pattern is so clear and easy to follow
This oooh s a very attractive pattern I can't wait to start but I have to finish the Champagne Cowl that I am working on right now.
I liked the simplicity of this design. It will allow the beauty of the yarn itself to shine through.
A gorgeous shawl and love the way the lines flow in a slanted way. I already bought the yarn to knit it.
This shawl attracted me at first sight because the way it’s constructed. I already bought the yarn.
Thanks for this beautiful shawl,
