A Faroese shawl worked from top down featuring various lace motifs. The shawl can be worked in any heavy laceweight or light fingering yarn; when worked in laceweight, the shawl will become a little smaller.

Finished size: 2.0m wingspan, 1.0 m from top to tip.

This shawl is the free bonus pattern from my book Shawl Design in Plain English. The book’s website is here. In case there are any questions please visit us in the group jriede knitwear design, we will gladly help!
