A Shawl for Bestemor
A Shawl for Bestemor is dedicated in memory of my Norwegian grandmother, Borghild Holaas, who was a guiding light in my life. “Bestemor” means grandmother in norwegian. She lived to be 100 years old and passed away in 1997.
Knit top down from a delicate top edge and decreasing into a slightly rounded trapezoidal shape. A subtle knit on border adds a lovely finishing touch. Beads can be substituted for the nupps in the shawl. Suggestions for bead placement are included in the pattern.
Medium measures 60” x 32”; Large measures 67” x 35”
Charts and row by row instructions are also included.
Many many thanks to my wonderful group of test knitters and proof reader!!!
I wish for you a wonderful knitting experience creating your own heirloom shawl and that you have a special someone in your life to dedicate and/or give her to ♥
