Here is a pattern for a more ambitious and unique shawl inspired by birds of paradise. Each row is made using different stitches to create a richly textured and highly varied surface. This, in turn, is ideal for the play of colors to yield a wild and vibrant garment that is definitely a very personal and stunning. The shawl as designed has a 19 inch radius, although the craftier among us will be able to adjust the size. The author provides detailed instructions, in both written and charted form. A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
