This pattern is published in 52 Weeks of Shawls by Laine Publishing. Find kits in several colours on the Kettle Yarn Co. website. The pattern is available in English and Finnish - you will get both when you download.

Frosted lichen in a snowy forest was the starting point for this design – a winter landscape shared by Laine’s Finland and Linda’s native Canada. Cetrelia is a lavish, comfortable rectangular wrap worked by alternating garter stitch sections and lichen stitch stripes. The shawl is worked sideways, from one short edge to the other.

The beautifully heathered silver yarn is reminiscent of birch bark, and the green hues are taken from the silvery greens of lichen – specifically the Cetrelia genus, which the wrap is named after.

Length: 60” / 152 cm.
