The Cascading Hearts Faroese Shawl 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. Finished size is 28"-31" long and 44"-48" across at widest point as worn.
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.
Knit Cascading Hearts with approximately 1075 yards of Lace Weight or Fingering/Jumper Weight yarn. Suggested needles are US 8 (5mm) Needles. Adjust size smaller or larger with change in yarn and corresponding change in needle size and yardage. Charted instructions.
