Pardalote Shawl by Ambah O'Brien | Named for one of my favorite Australian birds, the spotted Pardalote; a small brightly colored, short-billed Australian songbird related to the flowerpeckers, typically having white spots or streaks on the dark wings and crown. The name derives from a Greek word meaning “spotted”. Requiring only 2 skeins, the Pardalote shawl is a smaller project that has a big impact. Its combination of slip stitches and eyelets allow for play between the two colors, a reference to the spots on its namesake. Pardalote is a relaxing knit that will keep you engaged and results in a wearable asymmetrical triangle shape.
