Inspired by the song “The Leading Bird” by Markéta Irglova, Leah Thibault designed this cozy half-pi shawl with the idea of creating a wooly piece with a rustic, yet graceful feel. Worked top down in Owl and featuring garter stitch and dropped stitch techniques, Leading Bird is the perfect project to take with you wherever you may go.
