K734-Sprout of Life Faroese Shawl
K734-Sprout of Life Faroese Shawl

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Yarn over, ssk, k2tog, s2kp2, LT, RT

Pattern Description:

The pattern and color for this shawl reminds me of rejuvenation. The shape of this shawl is based on the Faroese shawl concept. Therefore it stays on the shoulders keeping the wearer warm. The pattern is worked as a border. The rest of the shawl is worked in Garter stitch. Instead of fringe which is customary for Faroese shawls, I have used a beautiful edging that I found in a magazine from 1880.

This pattern is part of a collection of six designs. 50% of the proceeds, after expenses, will be donated to Brain Cancer research at UCSF (University of California, San Francisco) in memory of my sister who lost her battle with the disease in July 2012.
