HeartStrings Shetland Lace Patterned Faroese Shawl incorporates traditional Shetland lace patterns of beads, diamonds and Madeira fans in garter stitch lace knitting. Top-down shaping of the center and side panels, front bands, and fitted shoulders achieves the illusion of bottom-to-top construction through the use of increases that look like decreases.
