This pattern is part of the ebook: Loom Knit Shawls: from Simple to Sublime.

Five loom knit shawl patterns and their variations will take you from a simple small shawlette on a large gauge loom, to a delicate lace weight yarn confection made on a ½ inch gauge loom. All the patterns may be made on a single 60 peg ½ inch gauge hat loom.
Variations include yarn weights of lace, fingering, DK, worsted or bulky. Designs vary from simple garter rows to beautiful flowers and geometric treasures. Shape your shawls in a classic full V-back, a long ruffed crescent, a Faroese half circle, or a petite shawlette.
PDF download includes 3 files: a 52 page, large print version; 20 page, 12 point paper saver; and a separate photo gallery file, to let you print the patterns the way you like to use them.
“My Fair Faroese”
My Fair Faroese is a half-circle shape made in 5 sections. To create a Faroese on a knitting loom, the shawl is loomed from one corner to the other, using 4 triangles and a straight center section. My Fair Faroese creates a medium sized shawl, that falls above the waist, and wraps nicely around your shoulders. Pattern directions are given step by step, row by row. If you are not comfortable working in fingering weight yarn, you may make this pattern “simple” by using DK weight yarn.
