MARIA ZILAKOU DESIGNS

… is a multi-colored thriagular shawl that will give you the chance to enjoy playing with color and work on a project that can be easily taken outdoors: in fact, I made sure both the increase rate and the eyelet pattern can be easily memorized. You will only have to look into the pattern instructions from time to time to follow the colorwork changes (that is if you don’t decide to do it your way).
This is another Mystery Kit© pattern, which means that it will only be available as a kit and via Unfilodi.

It came up as a result of one of those highly inspirational talks with the Unfilodi Knit House owner, Luisa de Angeli; she was dreaming of the Tropics, The Caribbean and such places, I believe we were both quite tired after a busy winter and dreaming of exotic resorts. So, we decided that Carmen Miranda would be our Muse for this one! I tried to create a shawl that reminds me of her ruffled skirts and her swinging dance;                      I only hope I made it!
