“The inspiration for this triangular shawl comes directly from one I found in Estonia. The decorative pattern in the wide border is a variation of the Tornikiri or Tower pattern. The center of the pattern’s “path” is filled with stacked nupps (buttons or knobs), a favorite addition to Estonian knitted lace“
