BIRD SHAWL This handknitted shawl is a piece of art which you will love for years to come. The beautiful bird and leaf pattern is a pleasure to behold. The harmonizing colours only add to the delight. It takes more than 200 hours to knit this shawl in supersoft lambswool from Scotland. It truly is a high end product.
Measurements: 100 cm high and 230 cm wide (aproximately measurement, as each piece is done by hand).
BIRD SHAWL - READY MADE
All shawls with pattern knitting are worked on cirkular needle, then cut up and sewn. Following each pattern, there is a clear description for how the model is cut, sewn and finished. When knitting with 2 colours, you "weave" the colour you are not using in every 2, 3, or 4 sts for in this way to avoid long strands on the back of the model.
This tecchnique is called Fair Isle and is used when working in the round or (on rightside rows) when working back and forth.
The shawl is knitted in lambswool on size 3.5 circular needles in 40 cm, 60 cm, 80 cm and 120 cm. The longest circular needle is especially good to have when you knit the wide piece plus the two diagonal borders that are knitted all in one and in the round. The needles are available in the webshop.
