The Shetland Swirl shawl gracefully swirls around your shoulders in a froth of lovely Shetland lace. The unusual shaping shows the Shetland lace to fine advantage, and helps keep this shawl on your shoulders. The shawl is worked by casting on four stitches at the middle top, then increasing with the “pi” method to create a semicircular shape. Longer “wings” are shaped with extra increases on the long top edges. It is finished with a lace edging worked sideways and attached to the live stitches of the shawl. This is a garter stitch shawl with lace shaping on every row. Recommended for experienced lace knitters (finished size approx. 30" along top curved edge of each “wing” and 27" down middle back), and uses 2 balls of Fiddlesticks Knitting Exquisite (50% mulberry silk/ 50% merino wool - lace weight - 545 yards per 50g ball).
