HeartStrings #H34 Dolly Faroese Shawl »
InstructionsThis small doll-sized shawl is designed to learn and practice neck-down construction and basic techniques for making a Faroese shawl in the traditional style — except upside down!
Type of item: Toy
Style: Whimsical, Cute, Traditional
hand-dyed variegated cotton/rayon yarn
What was your inspiration?
The size is suitable for 18" dolls and teddy bears, making it a delightful gift for a lucky doll or teddy bear lover!
What are you most proud of?
I made the Dolly Faroese Shawl shown here using variations 1, 2 and 4 in the pattern instructions. I like how the stockinette stitch fabric clearly shows off the bright colors of the yarn.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The distinctive "butterfly" shaping of the Faroese shawl makes an exceptionally wearable garment because of the shaped shoulders and elongated ends for optionally tying around the waist. The Faroese shawls in the HeartStrings collection are all worked from the neckband down. You start with just a few stitches so that you can become familiar with your yarn and the stitch patterns.
