This beautiful Faroese Shawl offers a classic design with a modern twist. The lace elements the remind us of the elegance of an abstract fern pattern.

The shape of DJAMILA is constructed by connecting a slowly growing center part with two continiously increasing wings. 

A comfortably huge triangle will arise, big enough to be easily knotted in the back.

A delightful border with a rolled edge is creating an interesting element at the neckline and then down the entire inside of the shawl.

The appearance of this beauty will be airy and light, but also comforting and warm.

You can use my welthase angel lace, held single or double, as well as any slightly blooming fingering yarn - such as welthase ml fingering or welthase BFL pearl - and the welthase BFL sporty DK is working very well, too.

The lace part is CHARTED, the rest is a written pattern.

This pattern is meant to be knitted with an  5 mm/US 8 circular needle 60cm, 80cm or 100cm long - or due to the yarn and gauge you´re choosing, may be sth. between 4mm-5mm.
