Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit lace
  • read charts or written instructions
  • work cables
  • block

Pattern Description:

Song Thrush is a crescent shaped shawl and is available in S, M and L sizes. It features a fancy yet uncomplicated edge, an airy lace section, and columns of cable stitches ending in stitch buds. The shawl is worked from the bottom up. Therefore, when your first excitement about the new project diminishes, you have visibly fewer and fewer stitches to work on each row.

Use fingering yarn for the same effect as in the sample shawl. If you work from DK weight according to S size instructions, you can make a big warm shawl for cold seasons. The shawl has to be blocked to shape, so make sure you choose yarn that holds blocking well.

The pattern is fully written out and charted.

Test knitters recommend these yarns:

Malabrigo Yarn Sock
The Natural Dye Studio PRECIOUS 4 Ply
Ella Rae Lace Merino
Wollmeise "Pure" 100% Merino Superwash
Wollmeise Sockenwolle 80/20 Twin

21 stitches and 34 rows = 4 inches in stockinette

I am a Lithuanian living in Hungary - for more than 10 years already. I learned knitting still as a child, and then knitted occasionally, but very passionately. I also did pottery, web and print design, but have no time for that anymore, because I again got obsessed with knitting and this time with designing as well.
