Here is a beautiful Shetland Shawl worked from the center to the outer edge. The main panel pattern is not a traditional Shetland pattern, but works fine with the rest of the patterns. I have used three different traditional patterns for the border. If you want a smaller shawl you can stop at the end of each pattern and start working on the edging. Traditionally Shetland shawls were knit on a garter stitch background. I have knitted mine in stockinette stitch except for the edging. You can knit yours on a garter stitch background so your shawl would not have a right or wrong-side.
A friend gave me the yarn and I named it after her to honor her.
20 sts & 42 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch with size 2 needles or size to obtain gauge

My name is Nazanin (Nazee) S. Fard. I have been designing for publication since 1992. I love to knit and crochet and most of my work is in these two mediums. Since 2007 I have started offering my designs independently.
I studied computer science in college and that has helped me in writing instructions. I always try my best to offer accurate patterns. Most of my designs have charts included with written instructions.
