Nidhi Kansal designed this pattern in collaboration with author Priyanka Champaneri (also a knitter), using key elements and aspects from her book The City of Good Death.
Everything about the design is connected with the book, from the fibre and construction to the pattern name, and even Nidhi’s original colour choice …
“The ghost was a woman, once. And she was remembered for three things: her eyes, her anklets, her parrot-green sari”
Having not yet read the book our colour combinations are inspired by the design of the shawl itself.
