Pear Drop

A delicate semi-circular shawl that can be worked in two sizes.


    The edging, worked first from side to side, features points incorporating the traditional Cat’s Eye mesh pattern combined with columns of fagotting; variations on edgings in this style can be found in many traditional Shetland shawls. It begins and ends with longer points, extending the length of the shawl and making it easier to wear as a scarf. Stitches are picked up from the yarn overs along the straight side of the edging and worked into the centre of the shawl. Ever closer rings of concentric decreases create a semi-circle and are highlighted with a simple double yarn over stripe that echoes the patterning on the edging.
