Speckles and bold stripes provide a festival of fun in this striking triangular shawl. Beginning with just a few stitches at one end, the simple garter pattern emerges like a rising phoenix and flies off the needles, leaving behind a versatile wrap of colorful beauty.

Féile is the Irish word for “festival” and is pronounced fay-la.
