I love shawls.  They make great accessories, add extra warmth and can look elegant.  What I don’t like about most shawls is that they tend to slip off my shoulders and they point to an area I’d rather avoid.
In steps the Faroese Shawl design.  Solving both the slippage and pointing issues and still looking great at the same time.  Armed with both Barbara Walker’s Treasury of Knitting and Myrna Stahman’s Shawls and Scarves book and encouragement from Myrna herself a shawl was conceived.
The shawl is made up of a variation of Feather and Fan called The Ostrich Plume and stockinet.  Simple enough for an advanced beginner, this lace shows off the beauty of variegated yarns.
Phoenix is shown in a fingering and DK weight yarns.  The fingering weight is a much lighter shawl, where as the DK weight is both heavier and larger.  Kona is widely available as undyed so you can dye your own color way for a truly unique shawl.  Or for those leery of dyeing their own yarn, there are several places that will custom dye Kona for you.
