Flying South is a warm and cosy wrap with a minimal and delicate look. It has a simple and beautiful eyelet pattern on stockinette stitch.
You work the shawl diagonally from one tip to the opposite edge of the triangle. I-cord bind off adds a clean and finished look.
This shawl is easily adjusted to different sizes and yarn amounts. And it’s so relaxing to knit. Perfect knitflix project!
Five skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Arbor (100% wool; 133 m / 145 yds per 50 g). Shown in colour Arabesque.
Or approximately 636 m / 696 yds of similar DK weight yarn.

This shawl is worked flat, but I recommend using an 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
19 stitches and 26 rows = 10 cm / 4 inches in stockinette stitch before blocking
