Fundamentally Faroese Shawl #1 is designed to walk you through the unique construction of a Faroese shawl, an amazing work of knitted engineering with a logic to the construction that is best knit to be learned. As is traditional, the shawl is knit entirely in garter stitch from the bottom up with decreases for shaping and an extremely simple lace pattern. Fundamentally Faroese Shawl #1 will give you the tools and experience you need to understand the construction and enjoy knitting your first (or fifty-first!) Faroese shawl.
