The Shetland Trader MKAL shawl is now available as a regular pattern.
This shawl begins with a Shetland style center construction where yarn overs are made at the beginning of every row as the triangle is formed. These are then picked up to work the border. An applied edging is then attached to the live border sts.
Please note that the pattern is 10 pages long. The last 3 pages are photo tutorials and do no necessarily need to be printed out.
