Woodlark is a type of lark but also a play on words as my name means lark in Danish and this design was largely inspired by walking in the woods where I live.

The Woodlark Shawl is knit in the round using 2 colors but shaped like a triangular shaped shawl with increases at the top and the center. After binding off the shawl is steeked along the top edge and stitches are picked up to hide the steek.

The pattern includes written instructions and charts as well as videos to guide you through the design.
