Peregrine Shawl

The Peregrine Falcon is the fastest bird, and in fact the fastest animal on the planet, when in its hunting dive, called the stoop. It soars to a great height, then dives steeply at speeds of over 200 mph. While I can’t guarantee quite that speed, it’s safe to say this shawlette worked in chunky weight yarn does knit up incredibly quickly. It’s a great last-minute knit for anyone on your list.
