Wildheart is a dazzling beauty with its clean lines and attention to detail. Romantic with an incredibly modern twist, this shawl is so airy it will leave you breathless.

The signature lace incorporated in this pattern is a unique combination of dropped stitches, eyelets and fishnet lace. Knitted on the bias, the alternating garter stitch and lace sections create dynamic visual interest and make Wildheart an entertaining knit.

One skein of The Uncommon Thread Uncommon Everyday (100% merino wool; 402 m / 440 yds per 100 g). Shown in colourway Zitouni.

Or approximately 360 - 400 m / 395 - 437 yds of similar fingering weight yarn.

To make the most of your precious skein, instructions are given to use up all your yarn if you have yarn left after all the pattern repeats.

This shawl is worked flat, but I recommend using 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needles to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
