Flying Cranes is a combination of lace and cables.
The shawl is started at one end of the wing tip with a few stitches and the volume is built up by increasing at one side. The little points border on the shorter sides is ‘knit as you go’.
The pattern is easily adjustable in size. You just follow on knitting until you decide that the shawl is big enough.
Any yarn from fingering to worsted weight will look good on the shawl. Consequently, needles should be adapted to the yarn used and the degree of lacy effect that you desire to achieve. If you want to get it more lacy, upsize your needles.
