Eagle Twist

Eagle Twist is a top down shawl, with a long wingspan and a shallow depth, making it a very unisex design. A gentle cable running down the centre gives this design its unique look. Easy repeating sections make this a quick knit in any sport weight yarn.

The pattern could easily be adjusted for sock weight yarn by adding more garter rows in the last garter stripe section for an equal size wingspan. Pick 2 contrasting colors and have a fun knit!

A special thanks goes out to Stephen West for doing the Tech Editing on this pattern.
