The thunderbird's silhouette soars over the world's largest temperate rainforest canopy that drips with leaves and lichen. I grew up here and now I can wrap myself up in the significance of this sacred place. This shawl is a wide triangle knit from the top-down all in one piece. Most of the lace is patterned only on one side with minimal work on the wrong side. Fully charted pattern with complete written instructions. Fully adjustable sizing to make a balanced looking shawl using almost any weight yarn! This means if you're using laceweight and doing numerous body repeats, you can also do more large leaf repeats for a balanced and esthetically pleasing result. GAUGE 27 sts/ 30 rows - 10cm/4" in chart A unblocked Gauge is not critical. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Fully adjustable Large approximately 36"x72"/91.5cmx183cm blocked PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light

Hi and thank you, I'm honored you're reading this :D I've been knitting as long as I can remember and love anything creative and artistic. I grew up in the world's largest temperate rainforest, where plenty of well-trodden bear trails lead past the best huckleberry picking areas. I'd run for miles down those trails and the ground is so spongy I never needed shoes ;) Anyway... I have a love for creative design or expression in various genres. Knitting is a given and I'll always knit and play with fibre. I process raw fleeces, dye and spin . I do some knitwear design but want to learn Salish weaving since it's something my family has done for many generations. I'm also an artist that paints landscapes and portraits as well as a classically trained pianist (ex piano teacher) and I'm currently learning the violin. Guess what? I hate doing accounting. I'm schooled in it and worked in the field for a long time but you know, I just don't like it. Too left-brained for me! I'm good at math though so that's a bonus in delving deeper into designing knits with lace. I love learning and I love challenging myself. If it's too easy, well I just get bored. I wonder how far these personally quirks will take me? Wherever I end up, I want to enjoy the journey. Lamawelh ey cha o ta' swayel "goodbye and have a good day"
