Today I finished the shawl. Yes, most of you guessed right, I was knitting a Faroese shawl.
16 comments came in, so I wrote the numbers 1 to 16 on a paper, cut them out and placed them in a small bowl. Mixed well, covered my eyes and pulled… nr. 3.
Congratulations to Janicke Leckang, you have won the yarn.

And here is the shawl. I will have to knit one more very soon while I still remember how to do it. I used the pattern in the book 215 Shawl Designs by Olivia Joensen. It has the basic shawl pattern in Faroese, Danish and English, but the book is sold out. We are so lucky as to have two copies at the library where I work.
At this point point in the process I almost gave up. there are so many stitches and I kept making mistakes in the lace pattern. Here I am trying to get an overview by using two circular needles.
The yarn is Sirri 2-ply, and the colour is C2
Try out this easy pattern.
You need 200 g Sirri 2-ply C16 and 40 cm circular needles size 3 mm and 6 mm.
The pattern is written in both an English and a Danish version.
The pattern is both written and with charts in colours. Included is a photo tutorial to show beginners how to make the thumb. No yarn included. Adult size. The mittens are inspired by an old Faroese pattern called Kettunøsin (the cat nose)
