From the pattern description: Cascading Hearts Faroese Shawl pattern features stockinette stitch knitted lace of interlocking heart motifs. The distinctive “butterfly” shaping of the Faroese shawl makes an exceptionally wearable garment because of the shaped shoulders and elongated ends for optionally tying around the waist.

Cascading Hearts Faroese Shawl is worked from the neckband down. You start with just a few stitches so that you can become familiar with your yarn and the stitch patterns. Different increase techniques are used in each pattern to achieve the traditional center back panel, side panels, front bands, and shaped shoulders.
