Hummingbird Charm is a lace shawl in two sizes, knit in one piece from the center-top outward. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern.
Starting on 6/22/11, Twisted Fiber Art will be offering kits on their website that will include enough yarn to knit Hummingbird Charm. The pattern is written in two sizes; perfect for either a single or double evolution. You can find out more information on the kit at their website here.
This design and amazing colorway were both inspired by the photo of an Anna’s Hummingbird taken by Jose Yee, My Shot. The color proportions are tweaked by Twisted Fiber Art specially for this triangle shawl.
To utilize as much yarn as possible in a Twisted Fiber Art Evolution, Chart 3 may be ended at any of 4 different places. The Edging Chart has 4 different variations to correspond to each of the ending places.
Written and charted instructions are included.
