A Faroese shawl is a traditional piece of clothing from the Faroe Islands. The unique design of Faroese shawls is the center back gusset shaping. Each shawl consists of two triangular side panels, a trapezoid-shaped back gusset, an edge treatment, some also have shoulder shaping. The shaping allows these shawls to drape over the shoulders and remain in place as the wearer moves, even if the shawl is not pinned in place. Now you can make your very own Faroese Shawl. This pattern is knit from the bottom up in garter stitch. Pattern contains two sizes but you can adjust size by using other needle sizes.

I love knitting and have been knitting since I was 6 years old. Today I knit and I make my own designs together with teaching knitting, e.g. Double knitting, Entrelac knitting and beginners how to knit.
