Milvus Shawl

"Milvus Milvus is the Latin name for magnificently graceful Red Kite, a bird of prey with steeply angled wings and deeply forked tail, that soars across the skies of my home. It inspired the choice of shape for this cool kite- shaped shawl - an exciting and fun project that is easy enough for even a real beginner knitter. What makes this shawl unique is the technique of making your own yarn by combining short lengths of other yarn into a knotted ball. Knots can be left showing to give texture to the fabric, or sewn, or knitted in."
