This shawl is knitted in Langsoond Shetland yarn, a DK weight making a cosy wrap to be worn either scarf-like or draped over the shoulders like a shawl. The central triangle features the cats’ paw motif and is framed by a repeated leaf pattern which is finished off by a garter stitch border. Brough is the neighbouring croft to our one and where a large percentage of the fleece for Langsoond comes from.
It starts with one cast on stitch and yarn overs are worked at the beginning of each of the rows to form a triangle shape that increases in size as you work. The leaf motifs and the central triangle are worked at the same time. Once the lace is complete a garter stitch edge is knitted and then the yarn overs are picked up along the edge of the shawl for the garter stitch edging.
