The gorgeous color of this kid silk yarn reminded me of the wonderfully bright plumage of the Strawberry Finch, a cute little bird found throughout Asia. What better way to show it off this gorgeous yarn than with all-over lace? Of course, this shawl can also be knit in fingering-weight yarn.

The Strawberry Finch shawl is knitted in lace patterning from the top-down in one piece, starting at the neck edge with a garter tab. The instructions are provided charted and written out.

Difficulty level
The Strawberry Finch shawl is knit from the top-down, starting with a garter tab cast-on. Patterning in the body of the shawl is on both RS and WS rows. Stitches used include knit, purl, k2tog, skp, yo, purl 1 below, bunny ears yo, and a centered double decrease.

This pattern is suitable for the intermediate to advanced knitter.
