Ranrike Shawl

from Knit & Knag Designs

Ranrike Shawl
Ranrike Shawl
Ranrike Shawl

Pattern Description:

Ranrike is the old Norse name for what is now southeast Norway and Bohusln (Sweden). The name comes from Rn, the Old Norse goddess of the sea, and refers to her kingdom. Ranrike is famous for its rocky landscape and granite cliffs.

The edging of the shawl is worked first. Stitches for the main body of the shawl are picked up along the edging, and the crescent shape of the shawl is created by working short rows. The pattern is charted, with lace patterning on every other row.

The shawl can be knit in three different sizes.
Small: Wingspan: 48 in (122 cm) Height: 14 in (36 cm)
Medium: Wingspan: 60 in (152 cm) Height: 15.5 in (39 cm)
Large: Wingspan: 72 in (184 cm) Height: 17 in (43 cm)
1 skein will be enough for the small shawl, but for the medium or large size you'll need 2 skeins.


11.5 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch, blocked
