A top-down triangular shawl, inspired by the simple rustic beauty of handspun yarn from the wool of North Ronaldsay sheep, a rare breed from the Orkney Islands in Scotland.
The shawl features a stockinette section and a lace edging with Estonian-style motifs; it can be easily customised to be larger or smaller. The edging can be worked with long points (shown in dark blue shawl), or with shorter points (shown in light blue shawl).
Note that gauge, and even yarn weight, is not essential, as the size of the shawl is easily customisable. This pattern is pictured in sport-weight handspun but will work well with yarns ranging from lace weight to worsted.
16 sts and 29 rows over 4 inches/(10 cm), in stockinette after blocking.
Note: gauge is not essential, as the size of the shawl can easily be customised.
310 yards of Sport weight
I?m a slightly obsessed knitter (and musician) hailing from Orkney, Scotland, and currently living in Edinburgh. I?ve been designing and self-publishing my own hand-knitting patterns for a few years now. I love organic forms in knitting, and I?m particularly drawn to textured knitting, like lace, cables and twisted stitches.
