Kalina Lace Shawl
Crescent shape shawl inspired by the pattern from the Haapsalu Sall book. Knitted in lace weight yarn from the bottom up. Lace first, short rows second. And finished with I-cord bind off, to control curling…
Shawl can be worked from written instructions or charts.
A lot of stitches to cast on. Nupps worked on a wrong side. Cable stitch is not hard at all especially if you master the needle-less cable method.
Kalina (kah-lee-nah) is Russian name for Viburnum opulus - Guelder Rose. Beautiful shrub especially in August when the berries are ripe, and the leaves turn to a bright red or rich purple before falling.
