I love knitting triangular shawls… It only takes few seconds to cast-on. You get familiar with the pattern pretty quickly, cause there is only few repeats in the beginning. And then you get almost sick of the main pattern, you get a new treat - a border, and may be another one… So, I’ve decided to design my own, with nupps, no less…

Fragaria - is a genus of flowering plants, commonly known as strawberries. As you knit this shawl, you will wonder where are those strawberries? There is only flowers… Magic begins then you turn in upside down.

The shawl has Estonian influence and few traditional motifs. I’ve opted for a smaller needles to get smaller yarn overs and ended up with pretty big shawl (27” by 56”) for 48 g of lace weight yarn. Shawl can be worked from written instructions or charts.

You can do as many repeats of the main pattern as you want, I use this tool to estimate usage. It helps me to use whole skein of yarn. Keep in mind nupps and bind off.

I hope you’ll enjoy knitting this shawl as I did.
