Hyrna Herborg an Icelandid Shawl
She is finished and I love her!
The pattern is in Three-Cornered and Long Shawls pattern book by Sigrídur Halldórsdóttir available from Schoolhouse Press. It has been translated into English but the translation is on the "short end". Jackie from Heartstrings has a complete annotation to the pattern.
The book is a bit pricy but well worth the beauty.
Once you figure it out, it is easy knit.
It took me about 12 hours of knitting time plus 6 hours of redoing almost half of the shawl because I managed to shift the center!
It is still wet and with pins on, the ends have been woven in but not cut yet. I am so in love I could not wait!
Oh and I forgot!
Thanks Lorette for reminding me! I used DMC Cebelia #20. Addi Lace Needles US 3. I think it worked out just fine. I used a bit less than a ball. Right on the button with what the pattern says about 400+ yds.
