Shetland Lace Patterned Faroese Shawl
HeartStrings knitting pattern #A5
This Faroese style shawl in garter stitch lace knitting incorporates
traditional Shetland lace patterns of beads, diamonds and Madeira fans.
Top-down shaping of the center and side panels, front bands, and fitted shoulders
achieves the illusion of bottom-to-top construction through the use of
that look like decreases
31" long and 44" across at widest point as worn. 1100 yards fingering/jumper weight yarn, 4 stitches/inch, size US 8 / 5.0 needles suggested. Adjusts smaller or larger with change in yarn and corresponding change in needle size and yardage. Shown in MacAusland Shetland jumper weight yarn (equivalent to fingering weight yarn). Charted instructions.

Laura McRae writes ...
I've just finished your Shetland Patterned Faroese Shawl and I wanted to say how happy I was with both the pattern and the result. The shawl is gorgeous in dark blue shetland jumper weight. The pattern was clear and easy to follow and the charts were very! easy to read. I've only been knitting for about a year and a half, but I had no difficulty following the instructions. In particular I liked the decrease chain stitch and the cast off with left a very flexible edge.
