Notes From the Designer:
Though the exact origin of kites is not known, it is known that they were flown in China and the Malay Archipelago two to three thousand years ago. The diamond-shaped Malay tailless kite was first introduced to the West in a New York City newspaper article in 1894.
This cozy wrap is kite-shaped with simple increases in the center of each right side row. Two stitches make up this simple but effective fade from all the colors of the sky as the sun traverses the horizon. Spike stitches are simply long double crochet stitches worked into single crochet stitches three rows below the working row. The V stitches form when two spike stitches are worked into the same stitch with a single crochet between them.

Still working away at it. Hopefully done before June. I can't wait to show it off! Once I got the hang of the repeats, I can ALMOST crochet without looking XD
Still working away on it, love how easy it is to work up. It's going to be amazing when it's done XD

Love the product. The chart was enough for me to understand the pattern. I dont have a yarn thin enough but it still lovely. I will try it with thiner yarn too.
This the cutest pattern I have ever used. Wonderful!!
È un pattern fantastico. Perfetto per filati gradient. Lo trovo ben spiegato e comprensibile. Adoro i vostri pattern. Che siano semplici o più elaborati, sono comunque originali e geniali. Mai banali. Grazie.

Looking forward to creating this beauty. Once, the new year comes in I'll have more time for personal projects. Thank you for this gorgeous work of art. I'll be sure to post when it's done.
Love, love, love it!! Thank you for sharing your pattern,
Simple but lovely gives the yarn the spotlight.
Simple but stunning. Gives the yarn the spotlight.
I love your sense of style and color and appreciate the free patterns that you make available. I haven't had a chance to make this pattern yet but it's very beautiful and hope to succeed in making something as beautiful as your example. Thank you - jude
Hermoso patrón! Me encantó!!
Your patterns are always a joy to make. Love your products.
Lovely pattern, well written, easy to understand. Good stitch explanation.
Another pattern waiting for me to finish knitting the baby blanket I started. I made a pact with myself not to start another project until I finish what I started. Can't wait to do this one.
This pattern is well written, and with the accompanying video should be easy for a beginner who is familiar with the basic stitches. The texture is beautiful!
