The Shetland Trader 2016 MKAL shawl is now available as a regular pattern.
Please note that the pattern is 10 pages long. Not all pages necessarily need to be printed out.
The first section of the shawl is knit using a traditional Shetland style center triangle. There are two options offered for how to work this section. One uses yarn overs at the beginning of each row (Center A) and requires that you spit splice in new colors as they are needed. If you prefer not to spit splice, or are using yarn that doesn’t work well for splicing, then you can use the second option (Center B).
A border is then worked up after picking up two sides of the center triangle and the shawl is finished off with a simple knitted on edging.
Laceweight yarn in the following amounts:
