Inspired by a trip to Iceland in June 2009. The Icelandic laceweight yarn was purchased at Alafoss. I started knitting in Seyðisfjörður, ripped it out and started again in Akureyri.
The shawl starts and ends with a single stitch and is worked in one piece. The charting is not too complex - but you need to jump between charts as the border triangles are charted separately.
Knit on US6/4mm needles using 4 balls of
Ístex Loðband Einband Icelandic laceweight yarn
col 0008 grey.
Total approx. 985yds/900m.
Maximum finished dimensions after blocking:
27in/68cm x 88in/224cm
