HeartStrings' Cascading Hearts Faroese Shawl pattern
features stockinette stitch knitted lace of interlocking heart motifs. The
distinctive "butterfly" shaping of the Faroese shawl makes an exceptionally
wearable garment because of the shaped shoulders and elongated ends for
optionally tying around the waist.
As in all other Faroese shawls in
the HeartStrings collection, Cascading
Hearts Faroese Shawl is worked from the
neckband down. You start with just a few stitches so that you can become
familiar with your yarn and the stitch patterns. Different increase
techniques are used in each pattern to achieve the traditional center back
panel, side panels, front bands, and shaped shoulders.
