Shetland Trader Loren PDF
This shawl begins with a Shetland construction method to create the center triangle of Loren from Gudrun Johnston. Stitches are then easily picked up from the yarn over loops that are formed down two sides 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 sts of the border as it is being worked.
