Many years ago, when I first began knitting and crocheting, I bought a book of knit shawl patterns called Folk Shawls by Cheryl Oberle. I read and re-read that book so many times and savored every word and photograph. I learned a lot about shawl construction from that book. I fell in love with feather and fan stitch with one pattern and faroese shawl construction with another.
I designed this particular shawl with faroese shaping but incorporating feather and fan stitch pattern in the gusset as well as in the border. This is also one of the few patterns I have knit more than one time. I've knit it 3 times so far actually! The first time was in Lorna's Laces Helens Lace, the second time was with Malabrigo Lace and the third time was in Freia Yarns Ombre Lace.
Another good yarn substitution would be to use one hank of Be So Fine, my fingering weight bamboo yarn in the Bamboo So Fine Yarn Lines. The 650 yard hank of hand dyed bamboo yarn comes with a pod of Wrapture to perfectly block your finished shawl. Now available in 7 colors here: Kristin's Etsy Shop
