Eagles are bold, beautiful and majestic and this is echoed in the shawl. Beginning at the right wing this piece is worked without seaming using join-as-you-go and very simple short row techniques. Garter stitch and stockinette stitch are combined to balance and add texture..

This pattern is test knitted
