Christyl aka Chrissy Lorraine is also a writer who has several pieces published in various books, magazines, and journals, as well as one self-published children’s book. Most of her work is published under various pen names, which she has used to separate the genres of her writing. Her pen name, “Amarine Rose Ravenwood,” is for feminine poetry. “Mina Marial Nicoli” is for children’s fantasy stories and whimsical poetry. “Saoirse Fae” is for fairy tales and fairy tale poetry. “Phoebe Grant” is for light-hearted mock-horror, such as dark fairy tales. Her artwork is all signed “Lorraina” (a phonetic spelling of her name). In these ways, she separates all of her work into their own categories and fields. She even had a couple of poems published by her college Literary Arts Journal, riverrun, under her old nickname of “Nina.”

Pattern by Christyl’s Creations

Lacy Shawl

This shawl was originally called the “Bridesmaid Shawl,” and is based on a pattern by Michele DuNaier. However, this shawl is a lot more versatile than simply being a bridesmaid shawl, and so I am categorizing it differently to the original pattern creator’s label.

This shawl is of medium weight and is very comfortable. It is also very feminine and lacy. In tones of blue and white, it is very cheerful, but of course, it can be custom made in any color combination.

Purple Dog Sweater with Hood

The Purple Dog Sweater, an original pattern by Christyl, is a variegated purple dog sweater with a black ruffle near the tail, and a black hood with a white, scalloped border.

The sweater is relatively warm – and can be made in a tighter, thicker stitch for short-hair dogs. This item can be adjusted for size and pattern to suit the dog type the sweater is being made for.

Lacy Bumblebee Dog Sweater

The Lacy Bumblebee Dog Sweater, an original pattern by Christyl, is a yellow and black striped dog sweater with yellow ruffles around the arms, a black ruffle near the tail, and a black hood with a yellow ruffle and stuffed antennae.

The sweater is relatively warm – and can be made in a tighter, thicker stitch for short-hair dogs – and grabs a lot of attention when walking the dog at the park. This item can be adjusted for size and pattern to suit the dog type the sweater is being made for.
