The Shetland Trader Flukra shawl begins with a Shetland construction method to create the centre triangle. Stitches are then easily picked up from the yarn over loops that are formed down two sides and the border is worked outwards from the triangle. The shawl is finished with an edging that is knitted sideways and attached to the live sts of the border as it is being worked.
Lace is worked on both sides of the knitting, however, there is no right or wrong side to the knitting.
