This shawl was specifically created to honor the first Swiss Wullefestival that will be held in October (3-4). I named the pattern after the hill nearby Zug, where the festival will take place. The pattern of the shawls reflects the undisturbed nature of Swiss forests, the clear colors, vertical lines and soft shapes.

Thanks for the French translation for Eviz.

The lace isn’t difficult to knit, it’s suitable for any advanced knitter or even adventurous beginner lace knitters. The shawl has the shape of the narrow moon, that allows the pattern to show fully, but lets you wear it on your shoulders safely, or even gives you a great opportunity to show off that unique shawl pin you save for special days. You are free to decide the size of the shawl, as the size of the body is fully adjustable.
