About The Pattern, In The Designer's Words
Wine Slice is an amazingly excellent bakery item I’ve only ever seen in one shop in Manchester. It looks a bit like an Arctic Roll, but it’s made of chocolate truffle and marzipan. It’s indulgent, cozy and satisfying.
This is a simple triangle shawl recipe, designed for when you’ve got a lovely skein you urgently want knit right now this minute. You can memorise the instructions very quickly, and hold down a conversation while you knit.
As it grows from the centre of the top edge, you can continue knitting as long as you like, as long as you have yarn to add. One 100g skein of double knit yarn will make a small but wearable kerchief, or you could keep adding more yarn until it’s a giant triangle blanket.
The pattern is knitted flat in garter stitch (although you can use stocking stitch occasionally to create varied texture). It features an attached i-cord edging (which you can use to tidy your ends away so you can minimise boring weaving in), a central cable column, and is finished with a picot bind off.

I’m Jane and I am a knitwear designer based in Manchester, UK. I believe that knitting is a creative collaboration between maker, designer and yarn dyer. I have released several successful patterns which adhere to this ethos. I spend the rest of my time working as a user experience designer for charities and social enterprises.
