Pardalote Shawl & KAL

Posted on

A 2 skein quickie and KAL…

A new Shawl design and a KAL to go with it. Introducing the Pardalote Shawl, named for one of my favourite Australian birds, the spotted Pardalote; a small brightly coloured, short-billed Australian songbird related to the flowerpeckers, typically having white spots or streaks on the dark wings and crown. The name derives from a Greek word meaning “spotted”. Requiring only 2 skeins, the Pardalote shawl is a smaller project that has a big impact. Its combination of slip stitches and eyelets allow for play between the two colours, a reference to the spots on its namesake. Pardalote is a relaxing knit that will keep you engaged and results in a wearable asymmetrical triangle shape.
