Soraya's Faroese Shawl
Soraya is a faroese shawl featuring two different heart patterns (one lace, one cabled) in the body. Knitted from the top down, it has a knit-on border that takes up the motif of lace and cables again.
Soraya means “good queen”, but also “little treasure” - so wrap yourself in this little treasure of luxurious alpaca and silk and feel like a queen!
The pattern for Soraya offers charted as well as written instruction and has been professionally tech-edited and test-knit.
