The sister pattern to the larger, three-colored Fruit Loops and Spiderwebs, Winterbird is only two colors, smaller, and less airy for a warmer project. With similar shaping and the same concept, this wrap is more of a small shawl that can be worn as a kerchief. Buttonhole shaping and decreases along with smaller mesh sections create the shape for this project in fingering/sock weight yarn.

This pattern has been thoroughly tested. Please note also that each row has stitch count totals for ease of use.
