Chiroptera Shawl - Intermediate Project
Pronunciation: kīˈräptərə, meaning Bat
A bit of an avant-garde style~
This very striking shawl when laid flat truly reminds one of a bat.
Hence the name.
How to Style Video link and Photo Gallery included!
The wrap is worked flat from corner to corner and flat. The very last lace section can be used as a built-in closure. Simply feed the skinny opposite end through any of the lace openings, literally. A fast and truly fun knit!
