Introducing a very special collaborative pattern designed by Christina Campbell and Sharyn Anhalt (GingerSnap) for the 2019 International Day of Peace. This day was established in 1981 by the United Nations to promote peace around the world. And what better way to celebrate than to knit a design themed on peace.

Through this pattern design, we’ve chosen to honor the Sandhill Crane, a majestic bird that faces challenges to migration due to a changing environment. Each year these birds migrate up to 6000 miles (each way) to their nesting grounds. This tribute to the cranes seemed only fitting, as the theme for the 2019 International Day of Peace is climate action.

Enjoy this garter stitch shawl knit on the bias with lace insets and a fancy little edging to capture the beauty of these very special cranes.

YarnScout has put together some amazing kits for this design that include all yarn needed and a copy of the pattern. See all the color options here. They will also be donating a portion of the kit sales to the Sacajawea Audubon Society.

To supplement this shawl pattern, The Healthy Knitter will be blogging weekly beginning on 9/21 through 12/21 about climate action, peace, and knitting. This pattern is also the Project Peace 2019 pattern… just coming to you a little earlier this year. To receive updates regarding new blog posts, subscribe to the blog here.
