This colourful warm and lightweight shawl is based on the style of traditional Shetland Hap shawls. The shawl is worked on larger needles in double knitting yarn and styled using four colours with a lace pattern which echoes the waves of the sea. The result will be something to be treasured for many years.
The pattern provides full written instructions and the border lace pattern is also charted.
