This corner-to-corner sideways shawl functions both as a wrap and a scarf, with a lace motif native to Scandinavia, commonly found in triangle shaped Faroese shawls. While this shawl has an entirely different construction method and shape, it features the same the light and lofty garter fabric achieved with large needles and woollen spun yarn. The name Solverv translates to Solstice, reflecting its versatility for every season.

I hope you will enjoy this pattern, and if you need any help or have any suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me in my Ravelry group ‘Skeindeer Knits’. It’s the best place for swift support. Happy knitting!

Construction
The shawl is worked from corner to corner, with a lace border that is worked concurrently with the shawl body.
In the beginning you start by increasing for both the shawl body and the lace border, then just the shawl body. After having worked the shawl straight to get desired wingspan, you reverse this process by decreasing the shawl body first and then also the lace border.
