About the pattern:
This shawl was inspired by Estonian lace and especially the beautiful shawl, Laminaria, by Elizabeth Freeman. This shawl also shares the blossom stitch with that shawl. The border is inspired by various designs but mostly I had a mental picture of how I wanted it to look so I tried to transfer that mental image to a chart – and yes, it came out exactly the way I wanted. I’m flattered if you want to knit this pattern. It’s my first knitting design and I would love to see my design on your shoulders.  If you alter or use only parts of my pattern please don’t forget to link back.

The turquoise version is knitted in Nyansera Bijou 2 ply and the yellow in Nyansera sundari silk 4 ply and these are the yarns used in the pattern.

I would also like to thank my testknitters for helping me with correcting pattern faults, misspellings etc: Lismete, Evaihalmstad and lilja2.

I started a KAL group when pattern was launched, it’s not very active but it contains useful posts for people looking for help with the pattern.

A new KAL has been launched by the site Historic crafts, they can be found here:
