PDF Jackie Heirloom Shawl Knitting Pattern 1ply cobweb
This is a PDF Heirloom Shawl KNITTING PATTERN. This heirloom hand knitted traditional Shetland shawl knitting pattern is my own design called the "Jackie" shawl, named after my sister - another ardent knitter! This beautiful shawl consists of a border lace, then knitted inwards with Cat's Paw, Horseshoe, Roundels and Diamond patterns, finishing with a knitted-in Madeira Pattern centre. The shawl is knitted in the round where only the odd rounds are patterned, all even rows are purled. The yarn is 100% pure Shetland wool and is light as air. Fine enough to fit through a wedding ring. This is a lovely gift for that special baby and christenings. Bear in mind these shawls were originally used for weddings and then kept for the baby's christening. Measurements: Approx 52" square (132cms) after blocking. To dress the shawl, hand wash only, squeeze gently, roll in a towel to remove excess water, dry flat, or block out fully and leave to air dry. I have used the old Shetland abbreviations throughout the written instructions, which are explained in the abbreviations section and also on the charts. Each chart is shown after each set of written instructions in order.
