Eagle Twist is a top down shawl, with a long wingspan and a shallow depth, making it a very unisex design. A gentle cable running down the centre gives this design its unique look. Easy repeating sections make this a quick knit in any sport weight yarn.

The pattern could easily be adjusted for sock weight yarn by adding more garter rows in the last garter stripe section for an equal size wingspan. Pick 2 contrasting colors and have a fun knit!*

A special thanks goes out to Stephen West for doing the Tech Editing on this pattern.

Thanks Tanja Miller for translating the pattern into German!

If you’re not too fond of the YO’s next to the cable, you can choose your own preferred way of increasing. KFB, M1R, M1L etc.. This will pull the stitches closer to the cable and there won’t be any ‘gaps’.

Because of the great amount of interest I’ve created a group for this pattern. Feel free to join the “Eagle Twist” group to share your progress or ask questions about the pattern! I’d be happy to see you there!
