Turning tradition upside down — This small shawl is designed to learn and practice neck-down construction and basic techniques for making a Faroese shawl in the traditional style — except upside down! The size is suitable for 18" dolls and teddy bears, making it a delightful gift for a lucky doll or teddy bear lover!

Instructions for three variations are included.

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. The Faroese shawls in the HeartStrings collection are all 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.

The Dolly Faroese Shawl pattern is a great way to have fun learning on a small shawl before putting the time into a larger shawl. This basic pattern uses simple yarn over increases to achieve the traditional center back panel, side panels, front bands, and shaped shoulders. Approximately 100 yards fingering weight or light sport weight yarn for each shawl; US 8 / 5 mm needles suggested.
