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.
