Light as a feather, tough as a board, sticks and string combine to create a cascade of feathers falling
down your back. Just a delicate touch, enough to complete any look and give you a reason to crow.
Knit in one piece from the top down, this shawl begins by casting on 11 stitches at the back of the neck
and increasing eight stitches every other row to shape this shawl into a crescent.
Finally, an eyelet-increase row is worked just before the bind off to ensure that a thorough blocking
is possible.

This pattern is only charted.
