This shawlette features traditional Estonian motifs. I designed it for my very dear friend Elisa, who gave me the honor to name this model after her. It has a curvy, soft shape obtained with short rows, narrower at its sides so as to be worn as a short scarf /neckwarmer.
The shawlette begins casting on the number of stitches needed for its entire width and then worked from top to bottom with short row technique.
After completing the “body”, the edging is knitted on all the stitches previously cast on.

The pattern offers directions for two different edgings.

The charts and the written directions show also where to place beads.

The PDF contains general directions for casting on, bind off and making nupps.

The pattern is in charted and text form.

This pattern has been test knitted with laceweight and fingering weight yarn.
