This Intermediate level design was inspired by Miriam Feltons’ Icarus. It is closer to a faroese shape than her triangle, and has many layers of feathered ends, and uses beads! This shawl works well at a variety of gauges, on a variety of yarns… and can be successfully knit in lace-weight, light fingering, fingering, or even light sport-weight and still be marvelous.

There are five sets of charts, each of which is comprised of two or three. In addition, the pattern includes two options - a wide version, and a narrower version. These versions may be offered separately in the future.

In response to queries: This is a stockinette based pattern.

Many thanks to the gracious and generous women who test knit this pattern for me: Janna C. Lawrence, Carla Willingham and Deidre Kennedy. Without them, the charts would NOT be right!
