Colorful Dolly Faroese Shawl

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo HeartStrings #H34 Dolly Faroese Shawl Link to website or photo www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/h34.shtm 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.

What you will need

  • hand-dyed variegated cotton/rayon yarn
