As always in my pattern designs, I hope to introduce the knitter to a new technique with instructions clear enough for the person using the technique for the first time. This shawl begins with a seed stitch neck tab. After completing the increases there is a slipped stitch design followed by an small eyelet section. The shawl ends with a lace bottom edge.

Because of the slipped stitch design this shawl shows the best with two very contrasting colors tied together with a variegated yarn that incorporates the two contrasting colors.

The inspiration for this shawl came from the beaches along the coastal shores of the Florida Gulf side. In the pink version the Spoonbills found in Florida have a colorway designed around their beautiful feathers.

The pink version colors can be purchased as a kit only available at A Good Yarn - Sarasota; in Sarasota, Florida. This kit includes the exclusive colorway of Spoonbill, an exclusive colorway only available at A Good Yarn - Sarasota.
