Purple is my favorite color – so when the lovely Wendy of @wnknits on Instagram (formerly @wnyarns) approached me about a purple shawl collaboration and showed me photos of her stunning Purple Spectrum colorway, I was blown away. Jessamy came to life!

Jessamy is a triangular-shaped shawl that is worked along the bias – with engaging lace sections nestled between some mindless garter; it’s the perfect blend of simple and enthralled to keep you interested till the very end.

Worked flat, Jessamy 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.


Jessamy is available in French, German, & English.
