Probably the biggest shawl you’ve ever seen - using only three skeins of fingering weight yarn!

Happy Unicorn is a Faroese shawl worked on a garter stitch base featuring easy lace stitch patterns.

Working with Mondschaf Andromeda makes any unicorn out there happy - promise!

The most basic and easiest Faroese shawl you can possibly knit is this one - use any yarn, any gauge, any yardage you like. Its size is completely adjustable.

The Faroese shape is achieved by combining two vortex mirror images, not by traditional shaping - it is worked sideways!

This pattern is perfectly suited for showing off the beauty of hand dyed yarns without fears of running out of yarn before finishing.

Finished Size
Size is completely adjustable.
If you knit the size shown in the sample, prepare for a HUGE shawl:
118 x 47 in (300 x 120 cm) after blocking (!). The shawl can be easily wrapped around you and tied at front like traditional Faroese hap shawls.
