Pattern release – Lark wings shawl

Here’s a meditative and elegant shawl pattern for you to work on this summer, the Lark wings shawl pattern.

About this crochet shawl pattern

Take flight in a world of whimsy with a pair of wings that rest on your shoulders and keep you warm on chilly summer evenings.

Made out of a light, shiny yarn, it will dazzle and amaze with the intricate feather pattern created as the shawl grows.

Its shape is that of a rounded triangle, with a central feather dividing the wings.

Here’s a full view of the Lark wings shawl.

The wings are created by increasing on either side of the central feather and the top edge. The feathers are divided by columns of eyelets.

You can make the shawl longer by adding more pattern repeats or shorter by skipping a few. Then add the feather endings to finish it off.

The pattern includes full written instructions, charts, US and UK terms, as well as an easy read version.


The shawl measures 190 cm or 75” across the top and 55 cm or 21.5” in depth. It can be made larger by adding more pattern repeats of 12 rows.
