Product details

Aileron means 'little wing'. The stripes, angled from the shawl spine, resemble long feathers in a bird's wings.

Aileron starts with a triangle worked in short rows before short row sections keep the angled striping pattern. An icord edge, worked simultaneously with the shawl shaping, gives the semicircular shape a strong finish.
Worked entirely in garter stitch, this is a fun knit with lots of little details.

Love the yarn for Aileron? Aileron is the result of a collaboration with Juno Fibre Arts to launch their newest yarn, Milly Sleek Singles.

Kits for Aileron and Milly Sleek Singles will feature in the JFA July update on Etsy.


I have created a number of instructional videos for the set up triangle:
