Choose a lace weight or a very light fingering yarn. Go forward, knit, design and wear this is a statement piece remembering the strength, protection, and power of those who wore the symbol of the PHOENIX.
I blocked mine pretty aggressively, so the final measurements on mine are 36” deep (neckline to bottom) and 60” wide (closer to the top edge). Not including the fringe.
