Spread your wings in this Sialia shawl, inspired by mountain bluebirds. Knit with just one skein of fingering weight yarn, it’s light as a feather and has a nice drape. The shawl is knitted from the top down in four sections. Its repeating lace pattern creates a nice texture and is rather easy to memorize. Tassels can be added to make the corners look more polished. This pattern was designed so that knitting can be stopped after any row, which allows you to use every precious yard of your yarn as well as adjust the length of the shawl. The Sialia design can be used as a base for experiments, as neither yarn weight nor gauge is critical. This makes it a perfect fit for a great and fast project with that one very special skein of yarn. The pattern has both the written row-by-row instructions and the charts.
