When my Ravelry group celebrated its first anniversary in June, I let the group members decide what my next shawl should be like. The resulting pattern is now done and we’re celebrating by having a Mystery KAL!
About the pattern:
Faroese: 180 cm 71” wingspan, 80 cm 31.5” deep
Triangle: 165 cm 65.25” wingspan, 80 cm 31.5” deep
Gauge: 20 sts and 40 rows = 10 cm 4” in garter stitch
(Gauge is not vital for this project, but it will affect the size of the FO and yardage.)
Madelinetosh Tosh Lace (115 g 4.06 oz, 868 m 950 yd, 100 % merino), 1 hank Betty Drapers Blues
Or approx. 870 m 955 yd laceweight yarn of your choice (Faroese version)
765 m 840 yd laceweight yarn of your choice (triangular version)
(Designer’s note: I used only one hank for the Faroese version, with about 10 g left)
4 mm US 6 80 cm (32”) circular needle, or a size that gives you a fabric you like.
(Designer’s note: I’m a loose knitter, so you may want to try bigger needles if you aren’t.)
8 stitch markers (4 of color A, 4 of color B)
Optional: 93 beads (85 for the triangular version) (Size 8, or take a length of your yarn to the store and see if it fits and if you like the look)
Small crochet hook (I used 0.75 mm) for beading or dental floss
Japanese lace stitches (explained in the pattern)
Knitting on a border (explained and tutorial linked in the pattern)
