Summary  Faroese style, top-down, circular needles, adjustable size, lace

Additional Construction Information Stahman’s Faroese-like shawls are knit from the top down in an unusual construction that starts with around twenty-five stitches picked up from a thin neck-band and ends at the bottom edge of the shawl.  The number of stitches increases as you knit.

Additional Sizing Information
The patterns do not give gauge;  rather, the book contains extensive notes on sizing the shawls for different weights of yarn or size of wearer.

Additional Yarn Information¬† Many of the shawls in the book were made in Haneke wool or wool blends.  Haneke was a boutique yarn mill that may not exist anymore.  However, between the sizing notes and shawl sizing not needing to be exact, a wide variety of yarns would be appropriate for these shawls.
