This triangular shawl is constructed using a combination of traditional and modern Estonian construction methods and is adorned with an Estonian “Cube & Spruce” allover motif. Worked in a pale shade of grey, it reminds us of snowy woods during Winter. Nupp clusters add subtle texture to the central triangle and a lacy border makes this a pretty accessory that will keep your neck warm during the cold weather, or act as a light layer during chilly evenings in the warmer seasons.

- This shawl is worked in three parts. The first is the central lace triangle, which begins at the bottom tip with 3 stitches and is increased as it is worked towards the top of triangle. After completion of central triangle, stitches are picked up along the diagonal side edges to work a lace edging. Finally, you will resume knitting across the live stitches at the top of triangle, picking up additional stitches from the side borders, to work the top border.
