Wild geese call as they travel to the south

The partridge chatters with mournful cry

                                       *Song Yu*


The days are cooling down, the leaves are changing color. There’s something magical about the clear brisk days, the first smell of the fireplace, the first frost, the sounds of the Canadian geese overhead as they pass through on their way south, the canning of the late fruits and vegetables. Autumn is here.

Wild Geese is top-down crescent shawl. Size is customizable by adding extra repeats to the main body. Many possibilities for beading.

Shawl can be worked from written instructions or charts. Blocking instructions are also included, to get those perfect tips.

Sample shawl: Inca Baby Silk (70% Baby Alpaca/ 30% Mulberry Silk) - 792 yds - 15 repeats of the main body- 73” x 28”

In addition there is chart to help with calculations, which will tell you yarn usage ratio on main body/lace. Chart is based on stitch count for every size from 10 to 40 repeats of the main body. So it would have to work for everybody. Scales needed.

Optional: you can repeat part B one more time to make it even bigger without contributing to wingspan.
