The Bluebird shawl is crocheted with gorgeous hand-dyed Mineville DK merino wool, resulting in a shawl with weight and warmth, yet a delicate feel due to the lacy stitch. The shawl is designed to fit around the neck and hang comfortably over or wrap around the shoulders. Worked with a 5mm hook, this project works up quickly despite its size.
