The Faaborg shawl (or Fåborg as it’s written in Danish) is a delightfully whimsical shawl - a lovely layering piece with a lot of playful character and substance. This is certainly a shawl that will keep you warm and cozy in the most turbulent of autumn and winter weather.

The shawl is started with a garter stitch tab. The colorwork in the border is done using the slip-stitch mosaic technique, so you will be handling only one strand of yarn at all times. The border patterning is both charted and written out.

Difficulty level
This triangle-shaped shawl is knit from the top-down, starting with a garter tab cast-on. The edging uses the slip-stitch mosaic colorwork technique. Stitches used include knit, purl, m1bl, k2tog tbl, as well as slipping stitches. This pattern is suitable for the intermediate to advanced knitter.
