Product description

This triangular shawl is constructed using a combination of traditional and modern Estonian construction methods and is adorned with an Estonian “Cube & Spruce” allover motif. Worked in a pale shade of grey, it reminds us of snowy woods during Winter. Nupp clusters add subtle texture to the central triangle and a lacy border makes this a pretty accessory that will keep your neck warm during the cold weather, or act as a light layer during chilly evenings in the warmer seasons.

    CONSTRUCTION NOTES

    This shawl is worked in three parts. The first is the central lace triangle, which begins at the bottom tip with 3 stitches and is increased as it is worked towards the top of triangle. After completion of central triangle, stitches are picked up along the diagonal side edges to work a lace edging. Finally, you will resume knitting across the live stitches at the top of triangle, picking up additional stitches from the side borders, to work the top border.
