12 Weeks of Gifting: Flight of Birds Shawlette

Week 8 in our 12 Weeks of Gifting series is here! This weeks’ pattern is the Flight of Birds Shawlette, a stunner of a shawl project that only requires 2 skeins of Chroma Worsted.

Designed by Mone Dräger, this unique knit draws inspiration from the impressive sight of a flight of migrating birds, heading south for the winter. The V-shaped lines are formed by slipped stitches, resulting in a truly eye-catching pattern. Go bold by pairing an electro-neon color like GoGo Boots and Black for maximum contrast, or create a more subtle gradient with softer colors like Bare and Shoreline.

The shawlette in the shape of a shallow triangle is knit sideways in rows using one color at a time, with the unused yarn carried along.

Remember: This pattern will be free for this week only! So be sure to download it before next Monday at 11:59pm Pacific Time. We have set up a handy 12 Weeks of Gifting calendar, so be sure check back every Tuesday to find a new free pattern. Happy crafting!
