Originally a KAL hosted in our Yahoo Group and on Ravelry, yarn still available here. Another Yarn Fairy Original, a fully shaped Faroese shawl works up fast in worsted weight for large snuggle-for one- or two people. A lovely shawl for this freezing cold winter we are having. What better way to celebrate winter then with a snuggly shawl. It requires 7-8 skeins of our lofty heavy worsted weight yarn, many colors to choose from. The colors go from light to dark, you will begin with the lightest color and work through to the darkest color until you run out of yarn.
