Bowerbird was released for the September 2017 SpringLaceKAL hosted by Green Tea Yarns and Cath Ward over in the Budding Designers Downunder group.

This crescent shawl knits up quickly in a delicious 4ply heavy silk lace yarn and includes a feather motif in its border. It is knitted from the centre top down to the border in one continuous piece. The elements of the shawl are a succession of 8 stitch repeats, which flow from the top to the border of the shawl.

Both charted and written instructions are included in this pattern. The blocked piece as knitted measured approximately 38cm deep x 200cm around the bottom edge, however the final size will vary according to individual yarn and needle choices.

3.25mm needles
100g or 400m of 4 ply lace weight yarn. 1 skein of Green Tea Yarns Ginseng 100% Mulberry Silk, in colourway Nerves of Steel used here.
