She takes to the night sky to hunt her prey, protect her children, and glide between the worlds. The soft feathers of her body expand outward as the firm, strong feathers of her wings enable her to take flight. Knit from the top center out, this shawl incorporates two different stitch patterns, mimicking the feathers and wings of an owl in flight.
