The Fairy Glen is located in the hills above the village of Uig on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. It's a unique and unusual landscape created by a landslip. I had the amazing opportunity to visit the Fairy Glen on an exceptionally rainy fall day.
Wandering among the cluster of hills I was stunned by the beauty of the rock formations, the cone-shaped hills that are dotted with ponds and waterfalls. It's otherworldly, a place you'd expect to find mythical creatures.
While I didn't find any mythical creatures, I did find inspiration for this shawl pattern--the rows of garter stitch lace for the uniquely textured landscape, the lace reminiscent of the pools of rain water, and the yarn color for the stunning green of the Fairy Glen.
This shawl is a smaller crescent shaped shawl knit in a simple, easy to remember garter stitch lace with increases on the right and wrong side. Once the lace repeats are completed you'll knit on more garter stitch lace while binding off at the same time.
