Åsne is a triangular shawl worked from one corner to the long edge on the opposite side. It is worked in garter stitch and eyelet rows. It’s made for the most beautiful skeins of sock yarn that you’d rather wear around your neck than on your feet. A single skein of fingering weight sock yarn will produce a decent size shawl.

Åsne is the Norwegian cousin of Taina.

You can continue the shawl until you run out of yarn. You can stop after any row.

There are two pdf files for each language (English and Finnish). One of them is shorter and works better if you will print the file on paper, the other one is longer and more practical if you follow the pattern using a device.
