Pattern Details

Troldhaugen is a triangular top-down shawl with beads, nupps, and a true lace edging. It's named for Edvard Grieg's piano piece "Wedding Day at Troldhaugen" from Lyric Pieces. In white it would make a lovely wedding shawl, while stronger colours give it more dramatic flair. The pattern assumes that you know how to cast on provisionally, knit nupps, read charts and attach an edging. Beading is optional but recommended for the border at least. A link is provided to instructions for the beading method used here. You'll need 1320 beads if you bead the whole shawl but just 120 if you only bead the border. My testers all used between 700-950 m of yarn, so 1000 m is at the high end of the yardage spectrum. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY provisional cast-on pick up stitches yo, ssk, k2tog, slip 1 k2tog pass the slipped st over attaching an edging add beads with a crochet hook GAUGE 12 stitches = 2 inches in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 66" x 33" / 166 x 84 cm SUGGESTED YARN 1000 meters of Lace weight
