Aloft gives you wings!

I designed this pattern to mimic as accurately as possible the wings of birds - differing sizes and shapes of feathers arranged in a swooping symmetrical pattern - while remaining a practical, wearable shawl. With the shawl laid flat, the wing shapes are obvious; when worn, they wrap around your shoulders and stay in place without a pin, forming a scalloped edge with a subtle ruffle effect in the back.

This yarn is 100% silk in a great palette of warm browns with hints of golden orange. The pattern was designed and knit entirely by me.

Size - a modest shawl or fair-sized shawlette; 18" from nape to tail and about 42" in wingspan. Worn on the shoulders of a short person such as myself it will fall just to the elbow.

Treat your lace shawl well (hand-wash only, gently, laying flat to dry) and it will last lifetimes.

Knit in a smoke- and pet-free home.
