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
The pdf includes charts and instructions.
English and French versions of the pdf are available.
With thanks to Christine Chochoy for the French translation and for making some Icelandic yarn kits available here.
