Bird of Passage by Afifa
A traveler’s dream project, the Bird of Passage Shawl was born out of a collaboration between Forbidden Woolery and myself for Forbidden Woolery’s Wanderlust yarn club. This shawl has traveled with me over 4 continents and was designed specifically to be the perfect project to travel with. A single skein, half pi shawl that allows you to drift while working the rhythmic back and forth of stockinette for the main body of the garment. A carefully crafted series of increases and decreases for the lacy edging creates a wavy border that’ll satisfy your lust to wander…
