“Kullane” means in estonia “golden”. It’s an airy and eye-catching triangular bottom-up knitted lace shawl full of tiny lovely nupps. These are a proof of hand knitting. When those are represented, you can be sure that the shawl is made by hands. The total count of nupps is 641 (850).

This shawl is started with knitted cast on from longest edge and knitted to center-up. For cast on you have to take the yarn in double and 1,5-2 mm larger needles than your working needles are.

It’s suitable for intermediate knitters.

Any cobweb or lace yarn is good for this shawl. You will need it 700-1000 m.

There are 2 sizes, M and (L), but it’s adaptable bigger or smaller sizes.

Needles and notions:
5-5,5 mm (US 8-9) for cast on
2,75-3,25 mm (US 2-3) for knitting
