This shawl is knit using a traditional Shetland construction. It begins with a garter stitch triangle increasing from the point outwards. Stitches are then easily picked up from the very visible yarn over loops along the edges and the border is worked outwards from the triangle. The shawl is finished with an edging that is knitted sideways and attached to the live stitches of the border as it is being worked.
Two sizes are given. The brown shawl is the smaller of the two. Written and charted instructions are provided. Make it in your favorite fingering weight yarn and enjoy the garter stitch goodness draped around your neck!
‘Aestlight’ means ‘east light’ in Shetland dialect.
