Shetland Trader Aestlight Shawl PDF
The Aestlight Shawl from the Shetland Trader is knit using a traditional Shetland construction beginning with a garter stitch triangle increasing from the point outwards. Stitches are then easily picked up along the edges and the border is worked outwards from the triangle. The shawl is finished with an edging that is knitted sideways and attached to the live stitches of the border as it is being worked. Lace pattern is both charted and written out.
