Old fashion ;)

There are a lot of Pavlovo Posad shawls without any name and unknown authors. This is one of them, but a few months ago the author was published - it was Klara Zinivieva, who was one of the most "active" artists of the Manufacture.
I love her patterns, especially her roses and other flowers, they are natural, bright and drawn in a great detail.
I wrote "old fashion" because  now the Pavlovo Posad Manufacture produces bright colourful wraps & there no traditional ecru, so I must bought some vintage ones ;)

Blooming Garden

As this pattern is my favourite one, I have it in three colours - grey, beige & red ;) The pattern was painted in 50-s (XX of cource ;) ) by the very talented artist Lidia Shakhovskaya.
This grey is very rare shawl, but also it is one of the most beautiful. Bright flowers look more colorful on the neutral grey backgriund.
Yesterday I wear it with my new hand knitted cardigan :)

I'm very happy to show you my newest bead crochet pattern, which was inspired by a lovely silk Russian shawl named "Nuance" and designed by Lubov Ikonnikova of Pavlovo Posad Manufacture. I've used one element from the shawl - a beautiful flower - to design this unique bead crochet pattern that I call "Red Flowers Summer". The pattern was made for 15/0 Japanese seed beads, because the pattern is pretty wide :)
I hope you like it & I think it is the first pattern of  the Russian Shawls patterns edition ;)
You can purchase PDF pattern here to make the beautiful necklace for yourself

Царевна (Princess)

One of my favourite authors and patterns - Tsarevna or Princess. The pattern was created by the talented artist Klara Zinovieva & I have ther wraps of her design.
This colour of Tsarevna was limited so I was happy when my friend buy it for me in Moskva.
All the colours are warm and elegant, they are so close to amber tones which I really love.
The knitted beanie was knitted by myself of the Tweed yarn, I think it matches good with this shawl ;)

Green Spring hat & mittens

Several days ago I finished this bright green hat & arm warmers. I think, pure wool knitted accessories are the best thing for wool Russian folk shawls, they are lightweight, very warm & cosy.
These beanie & mittens I've knitted of the organic wool Latvian yarn.
You can find my knitted beanie & mittens in my Etsy shop :)
As for the wraps, you also can fint them here
