An airy triangular shawl finished with a scalloped edge.
Fledge, a top-down, triangular shawl with bands of airy lace and stockinette, is a tribute to feathers and air, named for the first flying horse. Straightforward stitch patterns and lots of rest rows make this a nice way to ease into lace knitting. The double eyelets create a very open lace. Designed to use a single skein, Fledge is a great way to feature some hand dyed yarn. Shown in small fingering weight shawl, or medium lace weight shawl..
