I was fascinated by Shetland Shawls the
day I frst caught a glimpse in Meg
Swansons fabulous book "A Gathering of
Lace". From that moment on I wanted to do
a shawl in the Shetland fashion. The only
problem was no pattern seemed to be quite
right. There was always something I didn't
like in a particular pattern.
It took me a while to fnally make the
attempt of designing a unique piece
completely on my own. With the
tremendous help of Sharon Miller's
"Heirloom Knitting" and "The Harmony
Guides 450 Knitting Stiches Vol. 2" my
shawl took shape.
This shawl was a Christmas present for my
mother. It serves as a tablecloth. The
durable linen yarn fts that purpose well
and it sure looks nice on the dark wooden
dining table in my parent's home. On the
other hand, done in a fne wool this piece
might as well make a beautiful christening
shawl. Or just imagine the butterfies, ferns
and trees done a rich shade of green or
olive.
I don't think this pattern relies on a lace
weight yarn. Done in a fngering weight
with somewhat larger needles the pattern
will considerably grow in size and make a
real shawl. You see, the possibilities are
endless :-)
Happy knitting and Enjoy! Material and Size
Yarn: 250 gr/8.8 oz Linen yarn 20/2 (605
m/100 g = 662 yds/3.5 oz), halfbleached
(off-white); slightly thinner than #10
crochet cotton
Needles: 80 cm/32" Circular Knitting
Needle and 1 double pointed needle size 3
mm / US 2.5
Size: My shawl/dishcloth came out 118 cm
in square, which is about 46 x 46 inches. 1. Center Square
Cast on 129 stitches. You can either do a
regular cast-on or a provisional one. I don't
like doing a provisional cast-on so I just
did a longtail cast on and picked up
sttiches for the border out of the cast on
row. Nobody is ever going to notice.
In either case purl the second row. Start
pattern with row 1 according to chart A.
Work pattern repeat 15 times across, end
row as indicated in chart A. Work chart A
for about 184 rows to form a square. Work
two rows of stockinette stitch to fnish
square. Do not cast off!
center squareConstruction
This shawl consists of a center square
knitted back and forth, a border knitted
outwards in rounds and an edging attached
sideways. The stitches forming the border
are picked up from the selvedge and the
cast on row of the center square. (see
drawing)
The border is about half the width of the
center square.

1 Attention:
Even rows are to be purled!
Round 49: 178 stitches between markers
repeat 7 times
cast off 10 sts2. Border
Place marker and start picking up stitches
from left selvedge for border. Make sure to
pick up 2 sts from every third edge loop.
Place marker and continue with picking up
128 sts from cast on row. Alternative: undo
provisional cast on and pick up resulting
stitches. Again, place marker and pick up
stitches from right selvedge the same way
as on the left side. Place one last marker.
Purl one round and make sure you have
got 128 stitches between each marker (127
border sts plus 1 corner stitch). If necessary
increase evenly as much sts as needed.
Start working chart B (page 3). Even rounds
are to be purled to create a garter stitch
ground that does not curl. After working
chart B – you should have 176 sts between
each marker – continue with chart C. 3. Edging
The edging is worked clockwise. Cast on
13 stitches with contrasting piece of waste
yarn on a separate double pointed needle.
Work 1 row knit stitches with the project
yarn. Work back row knit stitches, knit
together last stitch of edging with shawl
stitch. Continue following chart D until you
reach frst corner.
Start working short rows 2 or 3 stitches
before you reach corner stitch of the center
square. * Don't work a complete even row
but turn edging at the pink line drawn in
chart D instead. Slip frst stitch with yarn in
back, work uneven row to the end. Work
next even row completely to the last stich.
Work following uneven row completely.
Continue from * until you've worked the
corner stitch plus 2 or three more stitches.
This short rowing might result in little holes
between the fern pattern and the faggot
panel but this will even out after washing
and blocking. 5. Pattern reference

4. Finishing
Undo the provisional cast-on and graft
together end and beginning of edging
carefully. Weave in remaining ends but do
not cut them. Wash and block frst. Make
sure there are no dropped stitches and the
ends are woven in securely. Cut loose
ends.
