A friend had a grey, cream and blue kalamkari fabric. the fabric looked dull to her, so she wanted a yoke done in cream fabric to brighten that kalamkari. She did not want any mirrors or embellishments. With these options, I drew the pattern and chose these colours. I gave this finished yoke to her, but haven’t seen, how it was used by her.
This pattern goes well with mirrors, if someone is interested can try this with mirrors, that was the reason , I had posted the pattern for this yoke.

This is a medium sized yoke in multi colours. The inspiration for this pattern was from Ethnic Indian design. Generally this design is worked with mirrorwork and a variety of other stitches. In this particular yoke , I did not use mirrors.
