Fae Wing Shawl


Fae Wing Shawl is a delightful pattern with lots of options. You will find it’s perfect to wear while communing with faeries.

This shawl is easy enough for a beginner, but stimulating enough for an experienced knitter. The pattern alternates an easy lace stitch with garter stitch and is finished off with a chevron stitch.

It looks great with almost any kind of yarn: handspun, solid colours, gradients or tweeds. And a little bit of sparkle never hurt anyone!

This shawl is knit from the tip to the wide end and can be made with a wide range of yarn weights: fingering to worsted weight. Blocking it afterwards will help open up the lacework and make your shawl even more impressive.
