When the Wollmeisen Birdies started showing up, I couldn’t resist purchasing a few sets for a shawl.
Bye Bye Birdies is a triangular-shaped shawl consisting of garter stitch paired with mosaic motifs. The shawl is worked starting with one section of the triangle; mosaic motifs are worked along this section by alternating the Birdie colors with the main color. Once the last color has been worked, the stitches are bound off. Stitches are then picked up and the remainder of the triangle is completed with a series of decreases along one edge. Pattern directions are both written and charted. (Written version is included as a .zip file.) There is also a schematic to aid in picking up the stitches along the first section of the shawl. And, as an aside, I love that you are decreasing your stitch count instead of increasing as you work towards the completion of the shawl.
