The Winged Monkeys were once a free people, living in the forests of Oz. They were carefree, but regrettably rather mischievous. They lost their freedom when the King of the Winged Monkeys, as a prank, tossed Quelala into a river, ruining his silk and velvet outfit. Gayelette (his fiancée) was furious and enslaved them to the Golden Cap, which allows its possessor to command the Winged Monkeys three times.

This shawl shapes a variegated colorway into the swooping curves of wings. A complimentary tonal colorway fills in the gaps and edges to create an easy-to-wear crescent shape.

Worked primarily in garter stitch, this design uses basic increases and decreases, slipped stitches, short rows, and picked-up stitches to create the shapes and join the pieces together.

Winged Monkeys is part of the Steampunk Oz Collection. Look for The Wizard (two skeins of DK yarn), Glinda (two skeins of fingering-weight yarn), and Wheels (two skeins of fingering-weight yarn).
