FLORA SHAWL This striking shawl, covered with birds, butterflies and flowers make you think of early summer when the entire nature enfolds itself. Long days with daylight till midnight in the Scandinavian summer, walks at the beach in the sunset.
An extra finesse is that you can chose to knit the shawl with a light base or a dark base.
FLORA SHAWL - light
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.
