I got excited and made something! Or more accurately, I got excited and finished something.

It's my very first pattern!

I made a similar shawl about three years ago and decided to make another one. But this time I kept track of what I did so I could write it up in a way people that aren't me can understand (hopefully).


This is a top-down Faroese shawl with lots of cables. It is a chart only pattern because written cable instructions confuse me so trying to write one that way just seemed like a really bad idea.

The pattern is available two different ways...
Zip file here which has the pattern itself along with three very large jpgs which are the charts.
PDF file here which has the whole thing as one file.

As mentioned, this is my first pattern so if anything is screwy or if you have any helpful hints please let me know. (Sunidesus (at) gmail (dot) com)

Mary Carson:

This is the most amazing shawl pattern I have ever seen. Thank you for sharing this, I know it's hard to keep track of what you're doing when you're designing as you go.


absolutely gorgeous! Well done my dear! :)


I started one of these yesterday and have made it up to row 24 so far.

Everyone SHOULD have one less stitch when they pick up from a provisional cast-on... the picked up stitches are the yarn between the originals, and thus, will be one less than the original count.

I'm making mine with the four stitch cable as the edge - eliminated the purled stitches. So far, so good!

I'm not a tiny gal, so I'm using size 9 needles and Cascade Ecological wool. About 3.5 to 3.75 stitches per inch.

Thanks for the pattern - having a great time!
