Darting this way and that, the breeze sings a sweet tune as it catches your hair, flicks your shawl and tickles your neck. Windsinger is a contemporary lace wrap that’ll keep you cosy with the gentlest touch.

A sweeping, asymmetric centre is mirrored by a lilting lace border and together they create a piece in perfect balance.

Full of simple yarn overs and soothing garter stitch, Windsinger is a super-light shawl that will fly off your needles with ease. The short rows are quick to work and easy to master.

The pattern includes written instructions and is suitable for adventurous beginners in search of a fun challenge with a spectacular result.
