Gardiner Yarn Works Portlandia PDF
Portlandia from Gardiner Yarn Works is a graceful and 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, formed by knitting a central panel with triangular shoulder panels on either side, is flattering and sits nicely on the shoulders. Stitch patterns are both charted and written out.
