GARDINER YARN WORKS
Portlandia from Gardiner Yarn Works is a lovely and very unique shawl. Featuring cables and lace that resemble birds and owls, this shawl was prompted by the popular Portlandia meme “put a bird on it”. The unusual trapezoid shape, which is made by knitting a central panel with triangular shoulder panels on either side, is very flattering and sits nicely on the shoulders. Stitch pattern instructions are both written and charted.
