Quetzals are strikingly colored birds found in South and Central America. The males are elaborately colored with a teal body and a bright red chest. Worked in a bright (or even a subdued) color, this shawl will give you plenty of reasons to flap your wings and shake your tail feathers. This is a triangular shawl with a garter stitch border that is knit from center back to the bottom edge. Yarn overs at each end and along the center stitch are used to form the triangle shape. Increases are worked on right side only. The shawl size can be customized (instructions included in the pattern).

This pattern is entirely charted.

Errata: Corrected in the pattern as of 6/26/2012. There was an error in the stitch counts under some of the charts of the Quetzal pattern. Chart D should end with 251 sts, chart E with 259 sts, chart F with 355 sts, and chart G with 391 sts. Thank you maria3442 for catching this!
