Knúsa v. Icelandic: to hug.

This shawl is warm, snuggly, textured with a hint of lace at the border, and big enough to wrap up in or to share with someone you love.

In the Set-up of the shawl, after working the first four rows, you will repeat the rows as follows:

Row 5: Rep Row 3.
Row 6: Rep Row 2.
Row 7: Rep Row 3.
Row 8: Rep Row 4.

Rep these four rows once more.

In addition, there is a note about a chart being available for the border, but it was omitted due to space concerns. It is available on the Taproot website here!
