The Haapsalu Shawl is a traditional Estonian shawl that is extremely fine knitted although the yarn is 100% wool (extra fine). It is so light and lacy that can be pulled through a finger ring. Haapsalu shawl consists three parts: a center section, a border and an edge which is knitted separately and sewn to the main part.
I finished my last shawls last month, but just this week I made my husband to make some photos of these (with me 🙂 ).
There are two of those – black and white. Both knitted according to traditional Haapsalu shawls.
As I couldn’t choose 1-2 photos, I present all of these:
“Sofia”, black, size: 180 x 75 cm, 100% Merino wool yarn, extra fine
“White Silvia”, white, size: 180 x 75 cm, 100% Merino wool yarn, extra fine
They are soft, elegant, warm and lacy.
