The Skerries Shawl was designed by Violet McQuade for Jamieson's.
It is a wedding ring shawl meaning that it is so finely knitted that it will pass through a wedding ring. It has a scalloped lace border which is picked up to form an inner border which in turn is picked up to knit the middle of the shawl. It is knitted in four pieces from the original lace border and then sewn together and the two ends of the lace border are grafted together.
The pattern is written out row by row rather than being charted. This is a challenging project but would be lovely to knit as an heirloom You will need 6 balls of Jamieson's Ultra Cobweb weight yarn.
