Lace knitting                Kniplingsstrik

 

I sell musk ox yarn - qiviut and handknitted shawls from this site:

 I have been knitting shawls in wool from musk oxen qiviut   

One is a shawl in the form of a moebius, that is a circle with a half twist. The shawl falls flat on the chest and can be used both around the shoulders and over the head

The pattern is a part of a shawl in the book "Shetland Lace" by Gladys Amedro, here you will find the most beautiful patterns. I adjusted the pattern to the width I wanted, knitted a long rectangle and sewed it together, as a moebius ring.

 

The other shawl is a pattern from the Icelandic book "Ůrihyrnar og langsj÷l", and is called Hyrna Herborgar. The book is published by the Icelandic needlework association:  HEIMILISIđNAđARF╔LAG ═SLANDS

There is a partial English translation of some of the pattern on the following link

This shawl I also knitted in 1-ply cobweb lace wool

 

 

                           

 

I knitted a big square shawl as a gift for my aunt at her 80 years birthday. I started from the middle, circular needle. The border is knitted sideways in the open stitches 

               

 

This shawl uses patterns from different books. A lot of good patterns in the two books

"Traditional Knitted Lace Shawls" of Martha Waterman

and

"Folk Shawls" by Cheryl Oberle

 

The best links to lace knitting I found on this homepage, including a Danish/English and English/Danish knitters translation.
