This shawl was a total experiment in shaping that happened to turn out just right. I wasn’t sure if it was actually going to work until I bound off and tried it on, and I’m quite delighted with the result! The patterns are bird-inspired, prompted by the popular Portlandia meme “put a bird on it” which also happens to be the name of this stunning colorway from Knitted Wit.

It is available individually, or as part of the Indie Lace e-collection of 12 shawl patterns featuring hand-dyed yarns from some of my favorite indie dyers.

All of my patterns have been professionally tested and tech edited. Both charts and written instructions are included.
