The fourth in Jennifer Dassau's series of shawls exploring non-traditional shaping with short rows.

Here is how Jennifer describes it:

Aerophile is a one skein garter shawl with narrow wings that stretch wide like a soaring bird which loves to fly. Each wing is knit using short rows from a provisionally cast on central spine, while the scalloped top edge is created by casting on additional stitches. After both wings are complete, a super-picot edging binds off the live stitches along the bottom edge.

Choose a beautiful yarn as the focus of the shawl, and let the uncomplicated ground and simple edgings highlight the fiber.

The original as shown here was knit in a fingering weight yarn, Dream In Color Smooshy (100% merino), 450 yards; 1 skein, shown in Deep Seaflower. This sample used approximately 425 yards of fingering weight yarn. You can choose any fingering weight yarn that sings to you and create a wonderful melody of your own!

Lovely fun!
