Manohara is the third of four patterns included in the Birds of Mythology e-book released as part of the Malabrigo Freelance Patterns Project for May 2012. Have you ever wanted to spread your wings and fly away? Manohara is a half-bird/half-woman heroine of Buddhist and Hindu lore who flies away from danger. With the Manohara shawls, knitting can become your escape from the daily grind. With options to make this shawl your own—sock weight or lace weight, one color or two, garter stitch or lace—nothing will hold you down!
