A delicate semi-circular shawl that can be worked in
two sizes. The edging, worked first from side to side,
features points incorporating the traditional Cat’s Eye
mesh pattern combined with columns of fagotting;
variations on edgings in this style can be found in many
traditional Shetland shawls. It begins and ends with
longer points, extending the length of the shawl and
making it easier to wear as a scarf. Stitches are picked
up from the yarn overs along the straight side of the
edging and worked into the centre of the shawl. Ever
closer rings of concentric decreases create a semi-circle
and are highlighted with a simple double yarn over
stripe that echoes the patterning on the edging.
