A Faeroese-style shawl acquires plenty of lightness and drape at a bulky gauge. Flanked by panels of garter stitch, a column of zigzag lace runs down the center back and flows into the wide lace border. The varying patterns manipulate the stripes of cream, burgundy, blue and turquoise in colorway #1009, which narrow as the shawl expands with eyelet increases from the garter tab. Garter stitch borders the lower edge.
