Estonian Lace Stole


This is the test knit I did for Knityoga of the rectangular version of her Estonian Lace Christening Shawl






I used three skeins plus a tiny bit (~28yds) of Zephyr Jaggerspun in colour Suede on 3.25mm needles. The nupps, which in the past have presented no problem were a bit of a trial to me with my current eye situation. In the end, I managed perfectly well, although slowly, using a darning needle to work the multiple knit-togethers. And there were a lot of them!



And it was well worth the effort!



It measures 84" x 25"

Wow... that is some shawl. I really love the colour, and I've recently got to thinking how nice it is to see shawls knitted in fairly neutral, natural shades.

Hope you are well, Kathryn, and the eye problem is resolving?

best wishes

That shawl is absolutely one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. You did a magnificent job and should be very proud of yourself. Glad your eye problem is now sorted.
