Over Firth of Forth Convertible Shawl
Over Firth of Forth is inspired by the engineering genius, Forth Bridge in Scotland. Finished in 1890, this massive cantilever connects Edinbugh with Fife. My ode to 'Over Firth of Forth' is a convertible shawl/stole. It is knit from the center out and the length is easily adjustable.
Over Firth of Forth contains written and charted patterns for both fingering weight and bulky weight yarn. (info above, if not otherwise noted, is for fingering weight Finito only).
