This wonderful triangular shawl called Faroese Shawl is a traditional design by Cheri McEwen from the Faroe Islands. Ever heard of this place? Eighteen mountainous islands form an archipelago that are located half way between Scotland and Iceland in the Northeast Atlantic. Looks like a beautiful spot, and an interesting fact, it is home to puffins … who knew! Be sure to click the link for a delightful video. Anyway, a Faroese shawl is a traditional piece of clothing from the Faroe Islands with the distinguishing feature of these shawls being the lovely center back gusset shaping.
The pattern designer crocheted the shawl in a solid color and it is very pretty (click the link above). I opted to use two different types of Dk weight yarn and three different colors, in shades of blues and grays and purples. I happen to really like this color combination, but whether a solid color, or mixing and matching, you can’t go wrong either way!
