Flying without Wings is a bottom up crescent shaped shawl. It has a lace border with three rows of feathers representing a wing, a garter stitch body and an eyelet edging. It will look stunning in any solid or semi solid yarn and can easily be adjusted for other yarn weights, like lace or sport wieght. At the end of the pattern there are instructions for widening or shorting the shawl and for increasing or decreasing the depth. The pattern includes both charts and written instructions, so however you prefer to read your patterns, this has you covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted.

I’ve always loved creating things – the list of crafts I’ve tried and enjoy is pretty long and varied. Learning to knit has been a fantastic experience for me – it has all the advantages of my other crafts without the drawbacks. It’s relaxing, portable, practical & useful, decorative and offers boundless possibilities for creativity! There’s something magical in taking two sticks and some string and turning it into a shawl or a cuddly toy, or a hat or jumper. The possibilities are endless and that makes it really exciting.
