This yarn was sitting left over from another design, calling to me like a siren. I love Icelandic wool and this yarn in particular exemplifies the magical qualities about it I love so much. It is light as a feather, warm and hardy. I needed a simple project to relax with, and came up with an easy pattern with a few interesting details (my favorite kind.) The eyelet columns travel outward from the center, meeting a garter stitch border at the bottom. Birds in Iceland are plentiful, and this shawl is named for the Northern Gannet, whose wing tips look dipped in black, just like this shawl.
