This simple Icelandic type shawl in garter stitch by Rebecca Blair is more refined than it seems. It features a very elegant top down construction and it is fully reversible: the color changes are concealed in the eyelet rows that separate the lace motifs. The stripes are worked in subtle shades of Icelandic lace weight wool, handyed with wild Icelandic plants by the dyers at Ullarsellid in Hvanneyrri in the West of Iceland. But the best about it is… the smell! Such a lovely smell from Iceland!
