Notes From the Designer:
•Karuna means compassion. The Karuna shawl design is based on the idea that individual differences, both large and small, may actually complement one another. In fact, they might even enhance the overall with very little effort. What a boring world it would be without our differences!
•Karuna's shape is what would be classified as a "distorted triangle.” This is easily achieved by starting at one point and increasing stitches along one edge while decreasing fewer stitches on the other edge.
•The main body of the shawl is knit in an easy basketweave type pattern. When changing colors, mosaic stitch patterns are used. This is a simple way to achieve a color pattern while only requiring the knitter to work with one color at a time. It is a great method to use as an introduction to colorwork.
•A gorgeous gradient, with clever stitches makes for a stunning shawl you'll love making and feel so proud to wear!

This shawl is simply gorgeous. It is easy to knit but an amazing design. I just love it, thank you!
So generous to have been given this pattern free of charge for a limited time offer. The pattern instructions are detailed, and I love the design - the changing colors, and the triangular shape. Looking forward to using some left over yarns in this one
I seldom get to make things for myself but decided I deserved this lovely cowl. I'm about 1/3 done knitting. It's easy but interesting. Can't wait to wear it.
J'aime beaucoup ce châle. J'ai très hâte de le réaliser. Merci !
Looking forward to making this one.
