This is a Shetland-style square shawl using traditional Shetland lace patterns. The construction is simple — a central square is knit, then stitches are picked up all around and worked on circular needles, after which the lace edging is added. It is knit in a very soft lace-weight merino yarn which comes in a lovely array of colours.
Recommended for Advanced Intermediate or Experienced knitters.
This pretty and feminine shawl is knit on 3.5 mm (US 4) and 4 mm (US 6) needles. Imagine how rich it would look knit in Charcoal Grey, or what about a variegated pastel? This kit is available in many beautiful colours, so use your imagination!
The pattern uses six skeins of Artisan NZ Merino Lace Weight yarn (20 gram skein = 300 metres). Finished size is 52 inches square.
