Icelandic Spring shawl
This lovely lace shawl designed with the colors of spring retains the main characteristics of the traditional Icelandic lace shawls: the very popular spider lace, undulating striped patterns, a lacy edge and a boomerang shape but here very accentuated making the shawl sit beautifully around the shoulders. Knitted from the top down on big needles and stretched extensively - thanks to Icelandic wool - it’s a rather quick knit and much easier than it seems!
24.04.2012 One year later, it’s spring again but it’s raining and muddy! Thus the idea for a new color scheme and the instructions updated in consequence: enjoy and happy Icelandic summer!
16.01.2015: Pattern has been updated with written instructions of the charts. New color combinations with four colors of Grýla Icelandic plied lace also added. Update has been sent.
