A Little Book of Moon Inspired Shawls is an expression of gratitude for the moon in knitted form. This booklet includes nine shawl patterns inspired by the phases of the moon. The designs feature different shawl shapes, such as crescent, asymmetric triangle and pi, as well as different textures — there is even a little bit of embroidery!
The booklet is much more than just a collection of knitting patterns. It offers a unique look into the moon, its cyclical nature and the beliefs associated with it. It also gives tips on how to work with the moon and shares insights on how the moon phases can be used as a guide to other things in life, including your knitting. Enjoy your knitting journey through the days of the moon cycle and tap your toes into its mystic shadows and illuminating light!

We met Veera for the first time in March 2015, since then she is one of our favourite designers - and we had lots of fun together. She was a guest at both of our Berlin Knits Festivals in 2015 and 2017, we accompanied the Interpretations Vol. 3 shooting in Potsdam and explored Paris together - and now she made an exclusive design for this year´s Frida Fuchs advent calender ... there's a lot to talk about ...
On Friday, December 1st from 6:30 to 8:30 Uhr she will be at our LYS. This is an exclusive event for a limited number of people. You will have the chance to get to know her, hear some stories from her designer life ... and maybe she has some samples in her bags ...
Snacks and beverages are included.
The event will be held in English.
