The Wren Shawl is a circular wrap with a flouncy edge that gentlyfloats away from your shoulders. A wren is a little bird, reminding
me of the bird used on Twitter. The bottom of three tiers of lace
has Ws that show up in the design helping inspire the name.
It can be worn with the opening in front or back, with a clip or shawl pin
or open, giving you a wide variety of looks out of one shawl. This is a
great use of a single skein of handpainted sock yarn because the pattern
decreases in size from the wide bottom edge to the small top border and
this diminishes pooling. This shawl will use the full skein of yarn!
The borders of each section of
lace is a garter stitch, giving a
nice delineation between the lace
tiers. And the simple lace pattern
is easy for a beginner to follow.
Blocking is important at the end
of the process to open up the yarn
overs that form the pattern.
