Have you met our dear friend Janie? Not only is she our rhyFlower forever FREE pattern, but she’s a wonderful human being!

Janie, a top-down crescent-shaped shawl, was developed to honor our talented French translator on her birthday! Nathalie and I had a lot of fun secretly putting this together in time to release for Janie’s special day. What better way to show her how much she means to us than name this lovely lace shawl after her?

Happy birthday, Janie! We love you and appreciate all you do. You keep us sane! ♥

Worked flat, Janie contains written directions, charts, and is broken down into comprehensive sections. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used and a handy-dandy progress tracker to help you keep track of your row and stitch counts.


Janie is available for FREE in French, German, & English.
