The book “Þríhyrnur og langsjöl” (“Three cornered and long shawls”) by Sigríður Halldórsdóttir is a reference for Icelandic lace shawls. I made the French translation of this classic, a compilation of 27 triangular and long lace shawls patterns with detailed explanations and techniques, as well as a little history of Icelandic lace shawls. Patterns reproduce Old shawls from the 19th and 20th century and tell about what is known of their origins. A few patterns were designed by Sigríður herself but inspired by the Old ones.
The book is in Icelandic with an English translation leaflet (2nd and improved edition).
French translation available here.
Carton, spiral, 21 x 29 cm, 78 pages
