Espiral pattern and e-book

Lately, I've been exploring new shapes and textures and here is the result - Espiral - the first pattern of my new e-book with the same name. Espiral book, which is a progressive eco-friendly e-book with 5 shawl designs. Stay tuned, four more will follow these two!
Two? Well, you may choose between mainly knit or purl for the one color version or go to a bicolor shawl also explained into pattern, the result is simple, yet, surprisingly different. This project works well with any weight yarn of your choice - be aware that by adding/subtracting rows you’ll use more or less yarn.
Are you ready for having fun? This is the perfect project for you, then! This mindless knit offers an elegant result.

Espiral is a seamless shawl worked bias in one piece, being easily customizable by simply binding-off when you achieve the desired size. It has a cool spiral shape; a great texture and a cute lace detail in the inner edge, both easy and fun to knit and wear. It starts with only a few stitches enlarging size gradually due to strategic increases and bind-offs. Its crescent shape is slightly asymmetrical and has a cool spiral shape in both ends. See the pictures below.

  3. I really like your photos of your knits. Usually I prefer knits being modeled, but the way you've photographed them hugging posts, lying on rocks, they look so lovely!
