The Wingspan shawl

My latest fascination, and I’m very glad to have one, has been the Wingspan shawl. I had a good deal of trouble making into the second triangle using the knitted pattern I found, but when I used the crochet pattern it all came together very nicely, I think. This one is made with a merino/silk blend and while it still has to be blocked, I think it came out nicely.

    • Thank you so much, Fawn. You’ve made my morning. I’m off to work in a few minutes, but I will see if I can find the pattern online and get it to you.
