Inspired by traditional Faroese shawls, this geometric design includes a modified Estonian stitch pattern and a popular Shetland lace insert – to create an overall woven & twined effect, similar to the results resist-dyed cloth using the Arashi Shibori technique.

Note: new samples knit with 100% superwash Merino lace yarns were substantially larger than the original, even when knit to gauge!
