Fiore di Mare Shawlette
Inspired by Niebling’s flowers, this shawlette is worked starting at the bottom of the triangle and, at the end of the flower the “tails” are worked separately, shaped with short rows.
The edge is knitted at the same time as the body of the shawlette and this PDF contains a photo tutorial on wrapped short rows, both on right and wrong side rows.
Pattern in both chart and text format.

I have noticed that Harrisville New England Shetland is listed on Ravelry as 197 yards on 50 grams but the ballband on the wool I used says 217 yards on 50 grams. So, please, be aware that if this wool now actually has only 197 yards, then two balls of them might be insufficient and the needle size suggested might be too small.
Thank you very much, seaglass, for test knitting this pattern !
