This dazzling lace shawl is entirely Estonian inspired. Lacy pattern stitches and a scattering of nupps are the essential ingredients of Estonian lace knitting. The ever gorgeous fern-type pattern stitch, central to this shawl, is framed with lace, as well as the bottom borders. Though this looks fairly complicated, it is really not hard to knit. The right side rows are the basic patterning rows, while the wrong side rows are nearly all easy purl stitching with the exception of the nupp stitch finishing rows. It is worked from the bottom up and joined in the center with kitchener stitch. The instructions include both written and charted directions for ease in working up this delicate beauty.
Finished measurements after blocking are: 70"long x 29" wide.
Yarn used: about 1760 yards lace weight. Shawl was worked using 2 hanks of Knitpicks Bare 100% Merino Wool; Lace weight; color-natural; 880 yards/100 grams.
Needles and Notions: (2) 24" or longer circular needles in size U.S.4; yarn needle for working Kitchener stitch, and sewing in ends; stitch markers.
