About the pattern

This Tunisian crochet wing shaped shawl pattern is inspired by the wonderfully colorful macaws and their magnificent wingspans.

It looks best in a symmetrical gradient or even in a lightly speckled yarn.

This is an intermediate/advanced lace crescent-shaped shawl with feather-like sections, worked from one tip, through the wider middle and toward the other tip.

The pattern consists of 13 sections and is fully written, with charts for each section.

You will need to read each row of the pattern to make this, as each section is different from the one before.

You will get:

– A PDF file with full instructions and small charts – A4 size.
– A cheat sheet for loop counts in short rows.
– A PDF file with easy read instructions (single column, 24 point Arial font) and large photos – A4 size.
– A PDF file with large charts – A3 size.
– A PDF file with modified section 7 with 4 extra feathers that allows you to make an extra long shawl.

Skill level
