Wrap yourself up in a fantasy. Firebird has a cable backbone and garter stitch ridges that give it a modern edge while subtle shaping creates curved wings that stay perfectly wrapped around your shoulders. The combination of fingering and DK yarns adds even more texture and makes it a great weight for keeping warm. The shawl is cast on at the point and grows as you go so you can easily control the finished size. It’s a perfect project for gradient yarns.
